Kamloops RCMP raid on North Shore home leads to wealth of stolen items

Kamloops Mounties have uncovered a cache of stolen items and have arrested a suspect after executing a search warrant at a North Shore home on Thursday.

An investigation by the RCMP’s crime-reduction unit led police to believe stolen property was being stored in the home in the 2000-block of Parkcrest Avenue.

After obtaining a search warrant, police descended on the home and discovered what Cpl. Jodi Shelkie called “a plethora of builders’ tools, survey equipment and stolen mail,” along with counterfeit American currency.

Two men were in the home at the time, one of whom was released.

The other man, a 36-year-old from Kamloops known to police, was arrested.

“It is difficult to put a monetary value on the amount of stolen items recovered today,”Shelkie said, noting police are in the process of matching serial numbers to items that have previously been reported stolen.

Charges are pending against the man arrested at the home.
