Thieves target Vernon stores

The RCMP are pursuing suspects for two business thefts early Thursday morning

The RCMP are pursuing suspects for two business thefts in Vernon.

At about 3:40 a.m. Thursday, officers  responded to an alarm at Nolan’s Pharmacy on 30th Ave.

“Officers confirmed a forced break and enter to the building,” said Gord Molendyk, RCMP spiokesperson.

“The target of this break and enter was prescription drugs. At the time, it is unknown exactly what was taken or quantities.”

Police are working to determine if video is available to assist in the investigation.

Police were then called to the True Outdoors store on Anderson Way Thursday at about 5:40 a.m.

Thieves forced the front door open and once inside, they stole numerous Canada Goose Arctic Line men’s and women’s parkas in various colours.

“These parkas have a distinctive logo with red maple leaves and the name in it,”  said Molendyk.

“These parkas start in price at $600 and up, resulting in a significant loss to the store.”

Reports are that a gray sedan vehicle may be involved in this break and enter.


Anyone with information about these thefts is asked to call the Vernon RCMP at 250-545-7171or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
