So what was this guy thinking, and why?
Just two of the many question stemming from a demolition derby in Kamloops last evening.
The initial call for the RCMP came at around 8:30 last night, a complaint of a vehicle that had backed into the Bank of Montreal located on Columbia Street.
Corporal Jodi Shelkie says, after that numerous other 911 calls were received of the same vehicle smashing into other businesses at the Sahali Mall, Aberdeen Village Centre Mall, Winners and numerous other businesses and banks.
“The suspect vehicle was located in the Lansdowne Shopping Centre, where the driver struck a police vehicle in an attempt to flee. The suspect vehicle was able to be stopped by police, and the lone male occupant was taken into custody.”
The suspect, 35 years old, was previously known to police and is recently new to Kamloops.
The driver is being held in custody to appear in court, says Corporal Jodi Shelkie,
“We can’t speak to his motivation for doing this. Really, whatever his motive was for doing it, doesn’t really matter, its the damage that’s done, and the criminal charges that he’ll face.”
The good news, no injuries.
The damage to all of the eleven businesses impacted, still being assessed.
