POLICE – Kamloops man charged with 10 offences including stolen property

What came in as a disturbance call led to police locating missing wallets and identification, arresting a man, and holding him for court.

On Friday July 22, 2022, around 7:15 a.m., Kamloops RCMP responded to Howe and Balmoral roads, where a man was arguing with a person who was allegedly in possession of his stolen property.

Officers arrived and arrested a suspect.

“As part of the investigation, police located other items, leading to a series of charge recommendations and approvals,” said Corp. Crystal Evelyn.

Nicholas Marcel Benallick, 39, of Kamloops, is charged with 10 offences, including attempt to break and enter into a residence; loiter at night; forgery; possession of stolen property; possession of identification documents belonging to other people; and failure to comply with an undertaking.

He was held for a bail hearing today (July 26, 2022), during which he received a release order until his next scheduled court date, Aug. 4, 2022.
