Police were alerted to a broken window on the south side of Canada Post in the 3100 block of 32nd Avenue Monday at 10:15 a.m.

The suspect or suspects left the same way after taking a collectible coin display case with various coins.

The value and detailed description of the stolen coins were not known as of Tuesday morning, but they were new coins.

Police believe the crime happened late Sunday night or early Monday morning.

Anybody who may have witnessed some suspicious activity in that area is asked to call the Vernon detachment at 250-545-7171.
