KAMLOOPS — Police in Kamloops have arrested a man suspected of robbing four different local convenience stores.

Monday morning (April 15) at 9:50 a.m., the Parkcrest Neighbourhood Store was robbed.

Kamloops RCMP spokesperson Cpl. Jodi Shelkie says this robber matched the description of the suspect in three other robberies that occurred in the city over the past day and a half.

Shelkie says officers quickly set up a containment area and based on the description of the suspect vehicle, located it in Batchelor Heights.

The 44-year-old man was taken into custody without incident and a knife was seized from the vehicle.

The suspect is from Kamloops and was previously known to police.
