On Monday, July 16, police responded to a motor vehicle collision in Little Fort.

Blackpool break-in

During the evening of July 24 there was a break in at a residence at the end of Caroline Road in Blackpool. A number of video games, Playstations and DVDs were taken.

The Kamloops Forensic Identification section examined the scene and as a result there are new leads that police are following up.

If anyone has information that could help the police, please call the local detachment at 250-674-2237 or Crimestoppers. This matter is still under investigation.

Tourist gets camera back

This is following up on an article from last week. On July 14 a tourist from the Netherlands turned in a camera at the Clearwater detachment.

This last week, the owner came forward looking for it. He is from Wisconsin and was happy to hear that somebody had turned in his camera and money.


Inside the case there was $119 USD and $420 CAD plus a camera lens worth $1000. The camera and money have been returned.
