Vernon business loses count after latest break-in

Front window smashed at Helmut’s Sausage Kitchen, yet again

New month, “same old story,” for a local business tired of falling victim to crime.

Helmut’s Sausage Kitchen reported another break-in to the 48th Avenue store around 5 a.m. Monday, Dec. 5. The front window of the building was smashed in order to gain access inside.

“I guess it’s come to installing bars in windows,” the Vernon store said in a Facebook post. “Not the town we grew up in anymore now is it. B&E #?? I’ve lost count.”

The store has asked anyone with information to email
