Mounties raid downtown Kamloops apartment unit
A portion of downtown Kamloops streets was closed on Friday night (Sept. 6) as Kamloops RCMP officers and members of the RCMP's Southeast District emergency response team searched a Seymour Street apartment unit for weapons.
Police cordoned off the area near 352 Seymour St. as they executed a search warrant at an upstairs apartment at that address, a residence Staff Sgt. Grant Learned referred to as an "active drug house."
During the raid, police set off a flash-bang device to distract those in the apartment unit, resulting in a loud bang and smoke being emitted throughout the area.
The device set off smoke detectors in the adjacent buildings.
When Mounties entered the residence, they found four men and three women, all but one of whom were questioned and released.
One woman was arrested and taken to the Kamloops RCMP detachment on Battle Street.
Learned said there were no injuries suffered during the raid.
Police would not say if any contraband, weapons or otherwise, were seized, noting more information will be released during a press conference set for the afternoon of Monday, Sept. 9.
