Suspects apprehended after break and enter in Valleyview

KAMLOOPS - Police arrested two suspects after seeing a male suspect climb out of the fenced compound at RTR Performance while following up on an alarm call at the business in Valleyview.

Cpl. Cheryl Bush, a spokesperson with the Kamloops RCMP, says the investigation revealed that the suspect broke a window to gain access to the business and loaded dirtbiking and snowmobiling merchandise into duffle bags.

The bags of merchandise were recovered outside the business after the suspect fled on foot. He was later discovered by the police service dog in a residential area.

Both suspects are accused of possessing a weapon for a dangerous purpose, but Bush would not confirm what the weapon was.

Leeann Catherine McKay, 22, and David Jeffrey Tremblay, 29, will appear in court this afternoon to answer several charges including breaking and entering, disguising face with intent to committ an offense and resisting a police officer.
