Arrest this week in Kamloops connected to April armed robbery

Kyle Jordan Deline, 30, of Kamloops was arrested on a warrant in Kamloops for robbery and a warrant in New Westminster for failure to comply with a probation order.

A man wanted in connection with an armed robbery in April was arrested on Tuesday (July 13) in the same area he eluded police three months ago.

Kamloops RCMP Const. Crystal Evelyn said the arrest occurred after police responded to a suspicious persons call in the area of Hillside Way and Rogers Way in Aberdeen.

The call at 12:35 p.m. involved a man with facial tattoos running from security guards while carrying items.

Evelyn said police officers, including the police dog tracking unit, eventually arrested a man down the hill on Dalhousie Drive in Southgate following a foot pursuit.

He was wanted on a warrant issued earlier this month in connection with an armed robbery near Aberdeen Mall on April 19 .

On that day, a man entered a retail store on the 1300-block of West Trans Canada Highway, 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.

Evelyn said a man known to police was taken into custody at that time, but added he was later released and a different suspect was identified, leading to the warrant request.

Kyle Jordan Deline, 30, of Kamloops was arrested on a warrant in Kamloops for robbery and a warrant in New Westminster for failure to comply with a probation order.

He remains in custody.
