Salmon Arm RCMP arrested a man and woman Thursday after they attempted to flee the police on foot.

The pair had been identified as being involved in a previous theft or fraud in the area by a witness to that event, which occurred days earlier.

Once the two were in police custody, it was determined they  were wanted on warrants from Alberta and were in possession of a stolen Honda motorcycle and another Kawasaki motorcycle which may have been obtained through fraudulent means.

The investigating RCMP officers also located a quantity of credit cards and bank cards, as well as ID belonging to other people.

The Salmon Arm RCMP detachment is following up with financial institutions, as well as the owners of the identification, to ensure they have not been victimized financially.

The pair have been held in custody to face local charges, as well as deal with the Alberta arrest warrants.

Road safety

The RCMP would like to remind the motoring public to watch out for motorcycles, bicycles, and pedestrians. There was a collision June 22 involving a motorcycle and a car, with both vehicles ending up in the ditch. The motorcyclist suffered non-life threatening injuries. A ticket was issued to the driver of the car.
