Man arrested with stolen property, credit cards and smoke grenade in Salmon Arm


SALMON ARM – Police have arrested a man in connection to a commercial break and enter that happened last month at a Salmon Arm business.

A 38-year-old man is not a resident of Salmon Arm and will face several charges in a court appearance this May, according to a media release from Staff Sgt. Scott West.

On March 23 police responded to a break and enter in a buisness located in the 1000 block of 10 Avenue Southwest. West says the suspect set off alarms and was caught on surveillance footage.

The suspect made off with items from the store and was later arrested in possession of those items on April 10. Police also found stolen bank cards, credit cards and what they believe to be a smoke grenade.
