A man who was wanted on a warrant has been arrested by Kamloops RCMP, after trying to hide in a dumpster.
Around 8:28 a.m. Wednesday morning, frontline RCMP officers were called to an alley near 2nd Avenue and Lansdowne Street, where someone had allegedly made threats involving a firearm and indicated he had a weapon when he was asked to leave the area.
“While police were investigating, they detained three people, one of which appeared to be reaching for a weapon and then ran,” said Corporal Crystal Evelyn, Kamloops RCMP spokesperson. “With the assistance of the Police Dog Service Unit, a suspect was located in a dumpster near 3rd Avenue and Lorne Street, and was arrested without further incident.”
Investigators determined he wasn’t the suspect in the threat complaint, but realized he was wanted on a warrant for breach of recognizance. He’s now in custody awaiting his next court date.
It’s the third time Tyral Dane Lariviere, 37, of Kamloops has been arrested on a warrant for the same offence since October.
On Oct. 23 he was arrested on an endorsed warrant and released on an order to be in court on Oct. 27. Another warrant was issued on Oct. 28 and he was picked up on Nov. 13 and released again on an order to appear on Nov. 17. He didn’t show for that court date and a third warrant was issued the next day.
Kamloops RCMP is still investigating the threat complaint and the subsequent foot pursuit and resisting arrest.
Anyone with information related to those events is asked to contact the Kamloops RCMP Detachment at 250-828-3000 and reference file 2022-41821.
