Kamloops Mounties are looking into a report of a robbery of a bicycle with the use of a firearm, but they say the two people involved know each other and that there is no risk to the general public.
Const. Crystal Evelyn said the robbery report drew a large number of police officers to the Ord Road area on Monday morning (Feb. 8).
Evelyn said police received the robbery call at 7:15 a.m., noting the suspect’s vehicle was found nearby and several people were arrested. She said an airsoft pistol and some drugs were seized by police during the investigation. Airsoft pistols are replicas that look like real guns and they shoot pellets.
Three people remain in custody as part of the investigation.
Anyone who witnessed what happened is asked to call Kamloops RCMP at 250-828-3193.
