Two people were arrested in a stolen vehicle in Kamloops early this morning.

According to a Kamloops RCMP media release, a police officer saw the stolen vehicle travelling on East Trans Canada Highway Frontage and Vicars roads at around 3 a.m. today, April 12.

"Shortly after, the vehicle pulled into a gas station and the officer initiated a traffic stop," Kamloops RCMP Const. Crystal Evelyn said in a media release.

The driver of the vehicle was promptly arrested for possession of stolen property and also issued a ticket for driving without a licence.

The passenger of the vehicle was also arrested for breaking probation conditions. Both were released from custody with a court date pending.

Once the investigation is complete charges are likely to be recommended, RCMP said.

The vehicle was towed and will be returned to its owner.
