Kamloops RCMP are looking to identify a suspect responsible for a fire on Eighth Street last weekend.

On April 23, 2023, around 6:50 a.m., police were called to the 900-block of Eighth Street, where Kamloops Fire and Rescue was extinguishing a blaze responsible for damaging a rear door of a business.

“Security footage obtained as part of the investigation shows a suspect on a green and yellow mountain bike with a blue blanket draped over it, wearing a grey hoodie, bluish pants, and a cast or bandage wrapped around their right forearm,” said Cpl. Crystal Evelyn.

“The suspect, believed to be male, departed southbound on 8th Street.”

Remnants of a burned tire were located on the scene.
