The Kamloops RCMP Detachment is seeking assistance to locate a suspect and vehicle in a carjacking late Monday night in Kamloops.

On November 27, 2023 around 10:30 p.m. frontline officers from the Kamloops RCMP were called to the area of Nicola Street and 11th Ave for a report that a man had been robbed of his vehicle by a man who produced a firearm.

The victim was parked in the 1100-block of Nicola Street in his dark blue, 2008 BMW 535Xi, bearing BC licence plate NM099B, when a man approached the driver’s window, produced a firearm and demanded the victim get out of the car.

The suspect, who was described as Caucasian man in his 40’s, standing approximately 5’7 tall and wearing a baseball cap, was last seen driving east on Nicola Street in the victim’s car.
Thankfully the victim was not physically harmed however was understandably shaken by the ordeal, states S/Sgt. Janelle Shoihet of the Kamloops RCMP.

We are asking residents in the area of Nicola Street and 11th Ave to review video surveillance between 10:30 and 11 p.m. for the BMW. While it is dark blue, it will likely appear black at night.
If you observe this vehicle in motion or parked but occupied, call 911. Other sightings may be reported to the Kamloops RCMP at 250-828-3000 and cite file 2023-42105.
