Kamloops RCMP search for driver who drove through doors of business

UPDATE: March 28

Kamloops RCMP have arrested a 53-year-old man for the attempted break and enter into the Bed, Bath and Beyond store on Monday.

The suspect is previously known to police and is from Kamloops.

All investigative information will be forwarded to the BC Prosecution Service who will assess the evidence and determine any criminal charges.

——————

Kamloops RCMP are looking for the driver of a vehicle that was perhaps trying to get access to a store ‘beyond’ business hours.

Just before 5:30 a.m. police responded to a commercial alarm at Bed, Bath and Beyond, where they found the front doors of the business smashed after a vehicle tried to drive through them.

According to Cpl. Jodi Shelkie no entry was gained through the second set of doors.

“Video surveillance shows a light-coloured Chevrolet Cruze driving through the doors,” said Shelkie. “ The video does not show the driver clearly, but it appears he is Caucasian.”

If you witnesses this collision or have any information please contact the Kamloops RCMP at 250-828-3000 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
