The man barricaded himself in a motel room

A 34-year-old man is in custody after allegedly smashing windows at a Kamloops motel and barricading himself in one of the units, according to RCMP.

Police first received calls at approximately 10 p.m. on Aug. 19 regarding a man in a suspicious vehicle that was seen in a hit and run collision and abandoned shortly after.

Another series of calls were made to police about a man in distress causing a disturbance, vandalizing parked cars and a motel.
