Suspects released, no charges laid after 'high-risk' arrests in Kamloops: RCMP

Kamloops RCMP officers were involved in a high-risk arrest on the city’s North Shore yesterday morning that resulted in a nearby school being placed on a hold and secure.

Officers responded at approximately 11:30 a.m., May 28, to a report a pickup truck that contained three people with a firearm and body armour, according to an RCMP media release.

Officers swarmed the area on Yew Street, and a nearby school was locked down.

RCMP said no weapons or body armour were found, but 22 grams of meth and fentanyl were seized.

Two suspects in the pickup were arrested and third was located soon after. All three suspects were released.

RCMP don’t say if any charges were recommended to the BC Prosecution Service.
