KAMLOOPS - A 32-year-old man has been arrested following an incident which interrupted traffic in the North Shore this morning.
A resident called police around 5 a.m. after seeing someone looking into, then hopping in vehicles, Kamloops RCMP spokesperson Cpl. Jodi Shelkie says.
A police perimeter was set up in the area while Mounties searched for the suspect. The K9 squad was brought out and a short time later police were able to locate the suspect, who is now in custody.
Once the suspect saw police, he dropped the items he was holding and ran. Officers found he had dropped women's belongings and they were most likely stolen. A Mountie was able to identify the man, who had outstanding warrants for possession of stolen property.
The police incident occurred near the riverbank behind Clifford Ave. The man is now in custody and will appear in court for his previous charges of possession of stolen property, and any charges that may come from this case.
