KAMLOOPS - The Kamloops RCMP's forensic identification unit is trying to recover fingerprints from a stolen vehicle found in Kamloops.

RCMP say an officer observed a vehicle stolen out of Revelstoke travelling on the Trans-Canada Highway coming into Kamloops Sunday evening, March 25.

The officer attempted a traffic stop but the vehicle fled, and the member did not pursue, according to an RCMP media release.

At approximately 9:30 p.m., officers received a call from a home on Battle Street West that an unknown vehicle was left parked in their driveway.

"It was the stolen vehicle," Cpl. Jodi Shelkie says the release. "We set up a perimeter in hopes of finding the suspect or suspects but no one was located."

The vehicle is now being processed by the identification unit for fingerprints.
