On April 12, members of the Logan Lake RCMP responded to a report of a possible break-in at a residence on Tunkwa Lake Road.

Upon arrival, police found three people inside the house who were arrested for break-and-enter. Their vehicle was seized and a search warrant was executed, which resulted in the recovery of stolen items from within the residence. All three were released on a promise to appear with certain conditions for court at a later date.

The next day, a woman who had lent the suspects the vehicle that was seized in the attempted robbery went to the police detachment to retrieve it.

Police released the vehicle to her despite the fact she was prohibited from driving and she was later found by Logan Lake RCMP driving the same vehicle on the Coquihalla Highway towards Kamloops.

She was arrested and when police subsequently searched her, they found and seized methamphetamine and cocaine. She was also found to be breaching a previous court conviction. One of the suspects from the previous day’s break-and-enter was also in the vehicle with her at the time and in breach of the conditions he had just been released on.

Police are now recommending charges of breach of conditions, driving while prohibited and possession of a controlled substance against the pair.
