On May 9 at approximately 16:45 the Barriere RCMP responded to a request for assistance from Kamloops City Detachment.
A male was traveling north from Kamloops on Highway 5 and was wanted for a domestic assault and breach of recognizance that had occurred earlier in the day.
Barriere RCMP made patrols locating the suspect vehicle at the Petro Canada station in Barriere with no occupants, and a search of the area was negative for the male suspect.
During the search the police were approached by a member of the public who had just observed a suspicious male who entered the Monte Carlo Motel lobby. Police immediately attended and located the male suspect in question and took him into custody without incident.
The car was towed from the scene; having been left running with no lock on the door, but was not stolen.
The male was transported to Kamloops cells where he was scheduled to appear before a judge in Kamloops Provincial Court on Thursday, May 10.
Barriere RCMP say thank you to the local male for his observations and quick actions that assisted in the apprehension of this suspect.
