File # 2023-34787

A Kamloops man wanted on 12 warrants was taken into custody this weekend, following a coordinated effort between RCMP detachments.

Tyler Meldrum, 28, of Kamloops, was wanted on two warrants for breach of a release order stemming from two Kamloops RCMP files in September 2023, as well nine more out of Alexis Creek and another from Williams Lake.

Efforts to locate Meldrum in Kamloops were unsuccessful but a keen investigator learned that he was likely hiding out in a residence in Alexis Creek RCMP’s area and connected with RCMP officers there, said Staff Sergeant Janelle Shoihet of the Kamloops RCMP.

Alexis Creek officers had been working hard to locate and arrest Meldrum but it wasn’t until an officer in Kamloops conclusively confirmed his location that he was arrested early Sunday morning, at an address in Anaham.

Crime may know no boundaries but neither does the RCMP, added S/Sgt. Shoihet.

Meldrum was expected to appear in court Monday morning in Williams Lake.
