Mounties respond to vehicle theft in progress

Man and woman accused of breaking into cabins and trailers in McLure now charged criminally

Multiple RCMP responded to a report of a vehicle theft in progress shortly after 3 p.m. on Wednesday, July 21.

Barriere RCMP Cpl. Rob Welsman reports that the suspect had fled in the vehicle, a Ford F350, up Westsyde Road, then subsequently dumped the vehicle in the bush and fleeing on foot.

“The vehicle was recovered,” said Welsman, “However, the suspect was not captured in that incident.”




Criminal charges have now been approved by the BC Prosecution Service in relation to an alleged break and enter back in May of this year.

The incident took place on May 12, 2021, when a very alert local called police to report observing two suspicious persons entering a private McLure area property on foot.

A Kamloops RCMP Police Dog Service canine team was called in to assist with a search of the area, and Police Service Dog Kody quickly located the track, and led his handler and Barriere RCMP officers to two suspects who were taken into police custody without incident.

While tracking the man and woman, police observed evidence along the way to suggest that the suspects were breaking into cabins and trailers in the area.
