Break-and-enter interrupted

Police arrested two people on Friday night after Monte Creek residents arrived at their home to find a break-and-enter in progress.

According to the RCMP, two people living near the 1000-block of Hook Road returned to their residence to find an interior door locked and voices coming from inside.

Members from the Kamloops and Tk’emlups RCMP detachments, as well as a police dog team, responded to the call at about 5:30 p.m.

Police said the suspects were believed to be in possession of a firearm.

“A Kamloops man and woman were taken into custody without incident,” police said in a statement.

“They were later released with a court date and could face potential charges following the investigation’s completion.”

Anyone with information related to the investigation is asked to contact the Tk’emlups RCMP Detachment.
