A man desperate for a loan took his frustrations too far Tuesday when he threatened bloodshed and hinted at bombing a North Shore bank after they turned him down.
The 50-year-old Kamloops man's anger boiled over during his second attempt at getting a loan that day.
His first unsuccessful attempt occurred at a downtown bank at 11:30 a.m., after which the man told employees he would burn his own house down, according to RCMP Staff Sgt. Grant Learned.
At around 2 p.m., he was again turned down for a loan at a different branch of the same bank on the North Shore.
At that point, he told employees there would be bloodshed and made a noise sounding like an explosion.
The North Shore bank's manager called police to complain of threats.
Police found the suspect at his home. No weapons or explosives were found and he was arrested, said Learned.
He will make a court appearance on Oct. 11 where Crown may push for charges of uttering threats or issuance of a peace bond.
