Kamloops RCMP are seeking to identify the owner of a puppy that was abandoned in a stolen vehicle earlier today (Monday, Nov. 14, 2022) and any information related to a break and enter.

Just before 7 a.m. Tk’emlups RCMP received a report of a break and enter to a business in the 1400-block of Chief Louis Way in Kamloops. During the course of the break and enter, a 2022 3500 Dodge Ram pickup and trailer, three dirt bikes, six sets of vehicle tires, as well as various tools associated to the business, had been stolen.

Later the same morning, Tk’emlups RCMP with support from Kamloops RCMP City officers and the Southeast District Police Dog Service tracked the stolen truck to a residence in the 2000-block of Pinantan Pritchard Road.

Two men located at the residence claimed no ownership or knowledge of how the vehicle had come to be on the property, nor did they know who owned the puppy found inside.

“We are asking anyone who has knowledge of ownership of this puppy, who appears to be a Rottweiler cross, to contact us,” said S/Sgt, Janelle Shoihet.

“The male puppy was wearing a red harness at the time of his rescue and has been taken to a safe place until we can identify his owner. As well, we are seeking any information related to the location of a trailer and three dirt-bikes.”

The three dirt-bikes, a 2018 blue Yamaha, a red 2020 Honda, and a 2019 red Honda, along with a white box trailer that has “residential & commercial 2lb spray foam insulation”, and the phone number “250-819-2991,” written on the side and back, as well as the tools, remain outstanding.

If you have information about this puppy, or the whereabouts of the items stolen during the break and enter, you are asked to contact the Kamloops RCMP at 250-828-3000 and cite file 2022-40844.
