RCMP tight-lipped about serious crime investigation at Kamloops home

Kamloops RCMP have have been surrounding the 1315 Tranquille Road home since April 12, 2024.

RCMP investigators have been at a North Kamloops home since late last week, but police are tight-lipped as to why.

A Kamloops RCMP forensic team along with members of the serious crime unit are stationed at the 1315 Tranquille Road home today, April 16.

Police arrived at the house on Friday, April 12, according to neighbours.

Officers at the scene won't say what they're investigating.

A tarp installed by investigators now covers a back deck, while a forensic investigator in a white overall could be seen inside one of the rooms. 

Neighbours told iNFOnews.ca police knocked on their doors over the weekend asking about any "suspicious activity" and looking for surveillance footage.

Wayne, a nearby resident who didn't provide his last name, said police would not give him any details about the investigation.

The house is known in the neighbourhood as a rental and the tenants changed regularly. It was unkept and sometimes loud, but the tenants didn't cause problems for others in the area.

Wayne said a couple weeks ago someone was cleaning the yard, something that "never" happened before.

He said it seemed as though the place was improving, until police swarmed the home on Friday. There was nothing that happened that day he knew of that would have spurred the police response.

Kamloops RCMP spokesperson Cpl. Crystal Evelyn said in an email, "the police presence on Tranquille is related to an ongoing investigation in which officers are awaiting a search warrant."
