Tappen Incident Ends With One Person Under Arrest

Salmon Arm RCMP say that one person was arrested after a Wednesday incident in Tappen.

Police say it began with an altercation between two men and a woman over an alleged break-in at a residence.

RCMP say that a man and women fled the scene, dumping stolen jewelry in a bathroom garbage can.

That pair also ditched a vehicle that had been stolen out of Sorrento.

Staff Sergeant Scott West says further investigative work brought about one arrest by the end of the day "The female was in custody, and had been released on a bail hearing. We're subsequently seeking the male at this point and time, who is known to us, and we look forward to sitting down and having a chat with him."

He says that area residents who called in reports of suspicious activity are to be thanked for their help on this file.
