April 14, 2021 - 2:43 PM

A stolen vehicle led police to seize a firearm from a Kamloops motel room early Tuesday morning.

A Kamloops RCMP officer was on patrol April 13 around 2:30 a.m., when he noticed a vehicle reported as stolen out of Surrey, parked at the Country Motor Inn on Comazzetto Road.

"The vehicle was unoccupied, but during the course of their investigation, police were able to associate it to a motel room, where two people were arrested and suspected drugs and firearms were seized, including a loaded sawed-off shotgun and ammunition," RCMP said in a press release.

Those arrested were later released. The investigation is ongoing.
