A break-in and a car crash May 8 led to RCMP presence in Sun Peaks throughout the week.

Before 4:00 a.m. on Monday, Tk’emlúps Rural RCMP Detachment learned about a break-in at a garage on the 1500-block of Heffley Louis Creek Road. Shortly after, another report was made close to the location of the break-in regarding a motor vehicle crash, according to an email from Crystal Evelyn, a media relations officer for Tk’emlúps Rural RCMP.

When officers and ambulance personnel responded to the crash scene, they found no one present in the vehicle.

After searching the area with police dogs, officers located two suspects, according to Evelyn.

The two individuals were arrested, released and taken to hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

Both investigations are ongoing. RCMP asks anyone with information to contact the Tk’emlúps Rural RCMP Detachment at 250-314-1800.
