Kamloops resident injured by two burglars

Police were called to a home in the 700-block of Munro Street at 6 a.m. after two men in their 20s broke into the house and triggered its alarm.

A burglary in Sagebrush (South Kamloops) on Thursday morning (April 29) left a resident injured, while the two bandits left with money and the resident’s wallet.

Kamloops RCMP Const. Crystal Evelyn said police were called to a home in the 700-block of Munro Street at 6 a.m. after two men in their 20s broke into the house and triggered its alarm.

“A resident in the home tried to leave, but was allegedly forced back inside, causing some minor injuries,” Evelyn said. “The suspects demanded money, then made off with items, including a wallet.”

At least one of the suspects is described as being white. Both are in their 20s and were wearing gloves and sunglasses. Both wore hooded sweaters — one brown, one possibly black.

Evelyn said a police tracking dog unit found the wallet, but the suspects eluded capture.

The RCMP has released images of two people of interest that police would like to identify and speak with.

“We’re asking anyone who lives around the area and hasn’t yet spoken to police to please have a look at their home surveillance to see if there is anything on it that might help with this investigation,” Evelyn said.

Anyone with information on the incident is asked to call Kamloops RCMP at 250-828-3000 and reference file 2021-13238.
