Van suspected in shop break in

Vernon RCMP believe a cube van may have been used in a recent robbery at Vernon’s Four Seasons Motor Sports Friday morning.

The alarm at the shop in the 4200 block of 25th Avenue went off at 4:50 a.m. Police discovered a pick-up truck was used to pull the doors off the business. It appears the truck was a stolen vehicle.

A 2012 Suzuki RMZ 450 motorcycle was stolen from inside the business. A Polaris RZR 570 side-by-side was still outside the business and a witness told police that the thieves were attempting to load it into a cube van when it appears the suspects were scared off.

“A cube van that is suspected as being used in this break-enter-and-theft was located in the 4400 block of 16th Avenue when a concerned citizen called the police,” said RCMP spokesperson Gord Molendyk.

The van was towed in for identification purposes, and was discovered to belong to a city businesses.

The file remains under investigation.
