A man with a warrant was taken into police custody after officers were led on a foot pursuit while investigating a weapon’s threat report.
This morning, Nov. 23, 2022, around 8:28 a.m., Kamloops RCMP frontline officers were called to an alleyway near 2nd Avenue and Lansdowne Street, where a person allegedly made threats involving a firearm and indicated he had a weapon, after he was asked to leave the area. No weapon was observed or located.
“While police were investigating, they detained three people, one of which appeared to be reaching for a weapon and then ran,” said Corporal Crystal Evelyn, Kamloops RCMP spokesperson. “With the assistance of the Police Dog Service Unit, a suspect was located in a dumpster near 3rd Avenue and Lorne Street and was arrested without further incident.”
As part of the investigation, officers determined the man in custody was not the original suspect in the threats complaint but was wanted on an arrest warrant.
Tyral Dane Lariviere, 37, of Kamloops was arrested on an unendorsed warrant for breach of recognizance and held in police custody for court. This is the third time police have arrested him on a warrant for the same offence since October 2022. He was arrested on an endorsed warrant on Oct. 23, and issued a court date for Oct. 27. On Oct. 28, another warrant was issued for which he was arrested on Nov. 13, held for court, and released on an order with a new appearance scheduled for Nov. 17. On Nov. 18, another arrest warrant was issued and executed today.
The initial threats investigation is ongoing, as well as a subsequent one related to the foot pursuit and resist arrest. Anyone with information related is asked to please contact the Kamloops RCMP Detachment at 250-828-3000 and reference file 2022-4182
