File # 2020-11610

Kamloops RCMP arrested a 49-year-old man who allegedly broke into a business and stole a vehicle.

In the early morning of Saturday, April 11th, Kamloops RCMP was notified of a break and enter to Integra Tire on Notre Dame Drive. When officers arrived, they found that someone had broke into the building and then drove a van that was inside one of the bays through the garage door.

About an hour later, a frontline officer on patrol in the area saw a van matching the description of the stolen vehicle. The officer initiated a traffic stop but the driver got out of the van and fled. Two RCMP officers took chase on foot and after a brief struggle, the suspect was taken into police custody.

Mark Daniel Clute has been formally charged by the BC Prosecution Service with break and enter, possession of property obtained by crime, obstruct a police officer, operation of a motor vehicle while prohibited, mischief and theft of a motor vehicle.

Mark Clute remains in custody pending his next court appearance.
