A Vernon business was the victim of a smash and dash Sunday night.
Police responded to an alarm in the 2900 block of 31st Avenue around 10:45 pm where entry was gained through the front entrance, and the suspects had fled the scene with an undisclosed number of Nixon watches.
“Once inside the business, the suspects targeted a glass display case containing the watches,” says Corporal Tania Finn of the Vernon North Okanagan RCMP.
Police continue to investigate this break and enter.
Anyone with information can contact Constable Kress at (250)545-7171 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
“We are so sad to share that last night someone from the community we love so much decided they needed some things more than we do,” says a Facebook posting by The Boardwalk on 31 Ave. “We’ve been up most of the night but will unfortunately be CLOSED TODAY to continue cleaning to ensure everything is safe and allow our awesome RCMP to complete their investigation. Thank you to our amazing customers! Well be back at it as soon as possible!!”
