Weapons, drugs, stolen items seized from familiar North Shore home

Officers with the RCMP emergency response team and the targeted enforcement unit surrounded the duplex unit at 990 13th Street at 6:45 p.m. on Monday (March 29) as they executed a search warrant on the residence as part of an ongoing drug investigation.

Kamloops Mounties seized weapons, drugs, stolen property and cash from a home in Brocklehurst that has been the source of problems in the neighbourhood for several years.

“As you can see by the fact that weapons were present and seized during this search, investigations of this nature come with a higher level of risk,” Const. Crystal Evelyn said. “Utilizing the special skillset of the ERT members helps keep the situation safer for everyone involved, including the public, police, and any suspects present.”

Two men and a woman were arrested, then later released pending the outcome of the investigation.

Neighbours say the address has been the source of criminal problems for more than eight years and are calling on the city and the landlord to act.

“From kids almost getting hit by cars with seemingly intoxicated bizarre driver incidents, shootings related to the home, people passing out/doing drugs in front lawns less than a block from an elementary school, drug dealing, bike chop shop and more,” one area resident told KTW.

“This craziness has been going on for more than eight years.”

KTW will have more on the address in question and the problems associated with it.
