The absence of a licence plate insurance decal led to Kamloops Mounties to recovering a stolen licence plate and numerous high-end tools early on Thursday morning (May 6).
At about 1:15 a.m., an officer was making patrols when a vehicle with no decal was seen travelling westbound on Valleyview Drive.
Checks of the plate revealed it to be stolen. The vehicle was stopped on Battle Street and, during the course of the investigation, high-end tools were discovered in its trunk. The licence plate and tools were seized.
A Kamloops man was issued tickets and his vehicle was impounded. He was released at the scene, pending further investigation.
Anyone with information is asked to call Kamloops RCMP at 250-828-3000 and reference file 2021-14568.
