A 34-year-old man is in custody following a hit-and-run incident and disturbance at a motel on Columbia Street in lower Sahali on Monday night.
Kamloops RCMP Sgt. Brandon Buliziuk said officers were called to the 400-block of West Columbia Street at about 10 p.m., in response to numerous calls about a man in a suspicious vehicle.
“The vehicle had reportedly been involved in a hit and run collision and was then abandoned in the 400 Block of Columbia Street,” Buliziuk said.
Shortly thereafter, Mounties received calls about a man in distress, smashing windows and damaging vehicles at the Travelodge.
The man then barricaded himself in a motel room where, after a short period of time officers — with the use of a police dog — arrested the suspect.
Charges will be determined by Crown counsel.
