File # 2022-41165

 A report involving a stolen vehicle led to police seizing multiple firearms, including one that was loaded.

On Nov. 16, 2022, just before midnight, Kamloops RCMP frontline officers responded to the report, and in doing so, were led to a residence on the 3000-block of Westsyde Road. Numerous members attended and four people were arrested without incident.

With assistance from the frontline officers, the Kamloops RCMP Crime Reduction Unit obtained a search warrant for the residence which resulted in the seizure of six firearms, including one that was loaded, and another reported as stolen from Alberta, said Corporal Crystal Evelyn, Kamloops RCMP spokesperson. Other stolen property and a small amount of illegal drugs were located as well.

A Kamloops man was released with conditions and a court date, with charge recommendation anticipated. The other three suspects were released without process, pending further investigation.

Anyone with information or surveillance that may be related to this investigation is asked to please contact the Kamloops RCMP Detachment at 250-828-3000 and reference file 2022-41165.
