The sweet sound of snaring a suspect in North Kamloops
A car alarm in the 400-block of McGowan Avenue in North Kamloops led to the arrest of a 20-year-old Kamloops man at about 8 p.m. on Tuesday, Feb. 26.
Learned said a resident in a house heard the alarm and saw a man going through a Ford F-150 pickup parked in the driveway.
The truck owner, who lives downstairs, also heard the alarm and the pair confronted the man in the truck.
A neighbour joined the group and recognized the man, who had fled before police arrived.
He was later arrested in the area and found to have property from the truck with him.
The truck sustained about $1,100 in damage, Learned said.
The man was in court on Wednesday, Feb. 27, to face theft of property and vehicle-damage charges.
