Four men are in custody with Kamloops RCMP seizing a number of illegal weapons and drugs this morning.
Corporal Jodi Shelkie says, around 7 o clock this morning, they responded to a call of a man waving a machete around in the parking lot at Cascades Casino.
“And there were three other males with him. We attended, and arrested all of the men. A search of their vehicle revealed a second machete, brass knuckles, a sawed off shot gun, and a quantity of illegal drugs that we’ve sent away for testing to confirm what they are exactly.”
Shelkie adds, the public was not in danger
“Parking lot at the casino was pretty much empty. So it’s not known what the motivation was for the man who was waving it (the machete) around at the time.”
All four suspects, now in custody, are from the Lower Mainland, were previously known to police, and an investigation is underway.
