Thieves target Vernon golf course

Vernon Golf and Country Club hit twice in less than 24 hours; liquor bottles stolen in both cases

Two break, enter and thefts at a Vernon golf course in less than 24 hours have Vernon RCMP asking the public for help.

The Vernon Golf and Country Club, on Kal Lake Road, was broken into at 6 a.m. Tuesday and again at 2:30 a.m. Wednesday.

In both cases, liquor bottles were stolen. In the second case, police got a bit of a look at the suspect.

“A surveillance video in this instance showed what appeared to be a man wearing a Santa hat,” said Vernon RCMP Const. Jocelyn Noseworthy.

Both incidents are being actively investigated.

“At this point it is unclear if the two break-and-enters are related,” said Noseworthy.

RCMP are asking anyone with information regarding either of these crimes to contact Vernon-North Okanagan RCMP at 250-545-7171 or Crime Stoppers, anonymously, at 1-800-222-8477.
