KAMLOOPS - A man accused of holding a homeowner hostage while ransacking their North Shore house has pleaded guilty to break and enter.

Steven John Insua appeared in Kamloops Supreme Court today, Sept. 22, and entered his plea after the jury for his scheduled trial had been selected.

In March 2014, Insua and Jason Joseph Robertson allegedly broke into a York Avenue home in what police called a drug related incident.

Insua did not plead guilty to a charge of forcible confinement in relation to allegedly holding the homeowner hostage.

He is expected to be back in court Sept. 29 when sentencing submissions will be heard.
