RCMP suspect previous offender

Salmon Arm RCMP think they’ve got their man.

On Jan. 31 at 5:30 p.m., a resident on 22nd Street NE heard the sound of someone breaking into the rear door to the home.

The suspect ran when spotted and was described as being an adult white male, unshaven, wearing a large coat, black toque, and dark gloves.

Earlier in the day, police had made contact with a local resident who matched that description. This person is currently on conditions of house arrest due to past criminality.


Police went to the man’s home and found out he was not there. Charges of breaching conditions of his house arrest are being forwarded to Crown counsel, while his association to Friday’s attempted break-in crime is still being investigated.
