A 23-year-old Kamloops man was cuffed after allegedly breaking into vehicles and running from police early Monday morning.
Cpl. Jodi Shelkie says Kamloops RCMP received a report from a resident on Nechako Drive of a theft in progress at about 4 a.m.
”The complainant said that they could see a male inside of their vehicle which was parked outside of their residence. Police attended the area and quickly located the suspect who ran into a forested area to evade arrest,” says Shelkie.
“The area was contained and the Police Dog Service was called in. The police dog was able to track the suspect to a residence where he was arrested.”
The man was previously known to police and RCMP are now recommending charges of theft.
