File # 2021-11530

A stolen vehicle led police to seizing a firearm from a motel room early Tuesday morning.

On April 13, around 2:30 a.m., a Kamloops RCMP frontline officer was on patrol when he noticed a vehicle reported as stolen out of Surrey, parked at the Country Motor Inn on Comazzetto Road.

The vehicle was unoccupied, but during the course of their investigation, police were able to associate it to a motel room, where two people were arrested and suspected drugs and firearms were seized, including a loaded sawed-off shotgun and ammunition.

Those arrested were later released and the investigation is ongoing.

If anyone has any information related to this incident, please contact the Kamloops RCMP at
