Police arrest suspect

Vernon RCMP are investigating whether they have a suspect in custody for one theft or if he’s possibly connected to more.

Officers were called Sunday at 8:30 p.m. to a report of an attempted theft of a stereo from a pickup in the 7300 block of Okanagan Landing Road.

Police were given a description of a white vehicle leaving the scene, and that vehicle was stopped by officers near the Longhorn Pub on 25th Avenue.

“A 40-year-old man was arrested, and our officers are continuing to investigate as this suspect may have been responsible for several other thefts, and possibly a break-and-enter in Vernon over the past several days,” said RCMP spokesperson Gord Molendyk Monday.

Molendyk said the suspect is known to police officers.
