A man arrested last month in connection to a robbery in April is again wanted by police after he was released by the courts and failed to appear at his next appearance date.
Kyle Deline, 30, is charged with robbery in Kamloops and failing to comply with a probation order in New Westminster.
On April 19, a man entered a retail store in the 1300-block of West Trans Canada Highway in Aberdeen, stole merchandise and flashed what appeared to be a firearm in his waistband at the clerk.
The robber ran down to Southgate and was seen in the area of Laval Crescent and Notre Dame Drive, during which nearby Beattie elementary was placed in hold and secure protocol while police searched the area.
A man known to police was taken into custody at that time, but he was later released and a different suspect — Deline — was identified.
Three months later, on July 13, Deline was arrested after police responded to a suspicious persons call in the area of Hillside Way and Rogers Way in Aberdeen.
The call involved a man with facial tattoos running from security guards while carrying items.
Mounties, including the police dog tracking unit, eventually arrested Deline down the hill on Dalhousie Drive in Southgate following a foot pursuit.
He was held for court and received a release order, with a next court appearance date scheduled for July 29. Another warrant was issued on July 30 when he failed to show up.
Deline is white, stands 5-foot-5 and weighs 160 pounds. He has brown hair and green eyes and sports various tattoos, including one beside his left eye.
Anybody with information on Deline’s whereabouts is asked to call Kamloops RCMP at 250-828-3000 and reference file 2021-12331.
