A Kamloops man is facing numerous charges after he rear-ended another vehicle in a stolen Kia last Saturday, police say.

In a news release, Kamloops RCMP alleges Layton Mclaren, 28, rear-ended a vehicle at the intersection of Battle Street and Columbia Street on Saturday morning in what was found to be a stolen vehicle.

Police responded to the collision around 7:15 a.m. on Oct. 9. No injuries were reported.

“As part of their response, police discovered the Kia had been reported stolen, which led officers into a deeper investigation and revealed other offences, including break and enter to a residence,” Kamloops RCMP spokesperson, Const. Crystal Evelyn, said in the release.

Mclaren is facing six charges, including breaking and entering a home, failure to comply with probation and theft of a motor vehicle, according to Kamloops RCMP.

He is scheduled for his first court appearance tomorrow, Oct. 14.
