KAMLOOPS — A host of Kamloops-area law enforcement agencies combined on a three-day vehicle blitz this week, raising $90,000 in fine revenue.

The agencies included RCMP based in Kamloops detachment and Central Interior Traffic Services, Commercial Vehicle Safety Enforcement, Canadian Pacific Rail police, Kamloops Bylaw Services, Worksafe BC and Ministry of Forests Natural Resource Officers.

Working in concert with both static and mobile road checks, officers pulled hundreds of vehicles over, focusing on how road-worthy the vehicles were.

In addition to issuing more than $90,000 worth of tickets, officers also made 15 drug seizures and found one loaded gun.
