A 29-year-old Vernon man faces charges following a break-and-enter at a couple of Vernon sheds.

“Investigation by RCMP officers led to the recovery of the stolen property and the arrest of a man,” said Const. Jocelyn Noseworthy, with the local RCMP detachment.

The man has been charged with possession of property obtained by crime.

He was held in custody pending another scheduled appearance in Vernon Provincial Court Monday.
