Unmasked; final three suspects in North Kamloops home robbery arrested

Three men are facing charges following a targeted home invasion in January on the North Shore.

One woman and three men allegedly entered and robbed a Kemano Street residence wearing masks on January 23.

Police say the suspects entered the home on the 1000 block around 1 a.m. with sharp-edged weapons. They made off with several items and one resident was injured. Victims of the invasion fought back and pulled the mask off of the woman.

She was quickly arrested the following day.

"She pled guilty and was charged," said Kamloops RCMP Cpl. Cheryl Bush.

Kamloops Serious Crime Unit investigated the matter and the Crown has laid charges against Kamloops residents James Paulin, Joadth Anderson and Travis Kelly.

The final suspect was arrested on Sunday night.

"It's been through various avenues of investigations that have led to arrests," Bush said.

Bush added that the suspects are known to police.

The men face charges of breaking and entering, forcible confinement, wearing a disguise with intent to commit an offence and assault with a weapon.
