Cops play eye-spy with thief

A Vernon couple found themselves in the middle of a potentially bad situation Thursday evening.

Police were called to a home in the 5000 block of 27 Avenue shortly before 7 p.m. indicating a break and enter was in progress.

"When police arrived the 21-year-old caller and his girlfriend were out on the street," says RCMP spokesman, Gord Molendyk.

"They told police a male broke into their house and could still be seen inside their home."

Molendyk says police could see the suspect peering at them through a window.

 Police entered the home, confronted the man and apprehended him without incident.

The 51-year-old Vernon man is expected to be charged with Break and Enter and Uttering Threats.

The suspect is well known to police.
