Some would-be thieves in Vernon brought attention to themselves by making too much noise.
A man walking to work just after 4 am Sunday called police when he heard unusual noise coming from the Home Hardware Building Centre on 27th Street.
“RCMP attended and also heard noise coming from a large fenced storage compound on the property. Three people were located and arrested inside the compound for break and enter,” says Cst. Jocelyn Noseworthy
Noseworthy says charges are expected to be laid against a man and two women.
A 40 year old man (from Kitimat) and 32 year old woman (Lake Country) have been released from custody on court compelling documents.
A 38 year old woman from Vernon has been held in custody to appear in provincial court Monday.
“Their names are not being released at this time,” states Noseworthy.
Noseworthy says it appears the trio was looking to steal a variety of items.
“They were compiling a bunch of things to take with them when they left. They (officers) heard them making kind of banging on metal noises”
Police are thanking the man for calling them.
