Cpl. Melanie Murdy said police officers spotted a number of stolen items in plain view when they entered the home, then returned with a warrant.

Murdy said police seized multiple stolen bikes, stolen tools and replica firearms.

“Neighbours commended the RCMP for their work and are hopeful, with the assistance of bylaw and the RCMP, the complaints drawn from the problem property will cease,” Murdy said.”

Cornwall Street is between Kent and Windsor Avenues in North Kamloops, one block east of Schubert Drive and the North Thompson River.
