The Salmon Arm RCMP arrested a suspect in a break and enter to a garage and subsequent theft of a vehicle.

On Dec. 12 just before 8 p.m., the Salmon Arm RCMP responded to a report of a theft of a quad valued at $11,000 and a Ford truck from a rural address in White Lake.

The suspect ran the quad into a ditch nearby and police received a call from another observant resident in the area reporting that a suspicious male was in the area and had left in a cab.

The police were able to track and locate the man and obtained information and evidence that led to an arrest in the incident.

A 25-year-old who has no fixed address is in custody awaiting a court appearance in Salmon Arm to face a number of charges.

Seeking suspect

The Salmon Arm RCMP is investigating a robbery.

On Dec. 12, just before 10 p.m., a man wearing a balaclava entered the Domino’s Pizza in the 2800 block of 10th Avenue NE and demanded cash. The suspect then indicated that he was in possession of a weapon, but no weapon was actually produced.

An undisclosed amount of cash was obtained and the man fled on foot. The store clerk was not injured.

Despite an immediate response to the incident and the deployment of a police dog, the suspect was not located.

He is described as in his 20s, 5 foot 10 to 6 feet tall with a slim build and possibly having red hair. At the time of the incident the male was wearing a black hoodie with red lining, black sweat pants and black gloves.

If you feel you have information, you are asked to call the Salmon Arm RCMP at 250-832-6044.
