Kamloops man facing 10 charges back in custody

Nicholas Marcel Benallick was arrested under a section of the Criminal Code regarding the accused contravening (or about to contravene) conditions of their release

A man who was held in custody by Kamloops Mounties on 10 charges, then released on bail, is back in cells a little more than a week later.

Cpl. Crystal Evelyn said an arrest warrant was issued and executed yesterday for Nicholas Marcel Benallick, age 39, of Kamloops, who is charged with offences including attempt to break and enter into a residence, loiter at night, forgery, possession of stolen property, possession of identification documents belonging to other people and failure to comply with an undertaking.

Evelyn said the warrant was issued under Section 512.3 of the Criminal Code, based on reasonable and probable grounds that the accused has contravened or is about to contravene the conditions of his release.

Benallick’s next court appearance is scheduled for Thursday (Aug. 4), which was the date originally set for his next court date upon his original arrest on July 22.

Benallick was originally arrested on that day in Aberdeen when police responded to a call in which a man was arguing with a person who was allegedly in possession of his stolen property.

Officers arrived, arrested the man and ended up finding missing wallets and identification.

Benallick had a bail hearing on July 26 and was released from custody.
