KAMLOOPS - A woman has been arrested following a hold up at a business in Salmon Arm last week.

A woman entered the store brandishing a knife and demanded money on Thursday, June 6, according to an RCMP media release. A hold up alarm alerted the RCMP of the incident a 10:36 p.m. RCMP don't identify the store.
