Police make arrest in connection to home invasion
Kamloops Mounties have made one arrest in connection to a home invasion this week in North Kamloops.
A 40-year-old Kamloops woman was arrested at 3 p.m. on Wednesday, Jan. 23. The home invasion occurred at 1:20 a.m. that same day, when three masked men and one masked woman, armed with bear spray and edged weapons, forced their way into a home in the 1000-block of Kemano Street and stole a variety of household items, including electronics, videos, a wallet, a purse and cash.
One man in the house was injured after being punched.
Police had been looking for the female suspect — whose mask had come off during the home invasion — and two officers went to a B.C. government office on the North Shore when she was spotted entering the building.
The woman was brought back to the RCMP's Battle Street detachment and held overnight pending her first appearance in court on Thursday, Jan. 24.
Mounties are recommending she be charged with break and enter and disguising face with intent.
Police say the woman is known to those living in the house that was targeted.
Anyone with information about these suspects is asked to call Kamloops RCMP at 250-828-3000 or Crimestoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS.
