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

RCMP were called Saturday to the 5200 block of Sandon Place after reports of two sheds being entered, and a portable barbecue and several tools being stolen.

“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.

Anyone with information regarding this matter is asked to call the Vernon/North Okanagan RCMP at 250-545-7171 or anonymously at Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
