A Vernon man didn't get very far before he was arrested following a break and enter to a business on Anderson Way early Wednesday.
About 2:30 a.m., RCMP received a report of a break and enter in progress at a business on the 4900 block of Anderson Way.
“Frontline officers attended the location and found someone had smashed the front door the business and stolen a number of items from inside before fleeing,” Vernon RCMP spokesperson Const. Chris Terleski said in a release.
“Viewing video surveillance from inside the building, investigators obtained a description of the suspect that was shared with officers conducting patrols in the area.”
A short time later, the suspect was located and arrested in an alleyway by a nearby business.
Cody Alan Macdonald, 31, has been charged with one count each of break and enter and failing to comply with a probation order.
He remains in custody pending a court appearance.
