Kamloops Mounties say they came across a “kidnapping kit” and a significant cache of drugs earlier this week when they stopped a vehicle with expired plates.

During a stop near Columbia Street and Highway 1 in Kamloops on Sept. 22 for expired insurance, police say an RCMP officer saw weapons, resulting in the detention of its occupants.
