Talk about your good neighbours. A man from Golden was in Vernon on the weekend when he happened to notice the his neighbour’s truck, the same vehicle he knew to have been stolen from Golden on Oct. 20. The truck was spotted at around 1 p.m. in the 5000 block of Anderson Way.

“Two of our officers attended and located the stolen truck,” said Vernon RCMP spokesperson Gord Molendyk. “When the police arrived a man took off runing from the driver’s side of the truck.”

The man ran north through a parking lot going toward the back of the Real Canadian Superstore.

“Our officers chased the suspect on foot and were able to arrest him at the north side of the Superstore,” said Molendyk.

The suspect, a 41-year-old Enderby man, was taken into custody.

Police learned that a 49-year-old Enderby woman was with the man. She was located inside the Superstore on the second floor near the walk-in clinic.

She, too, was taken into custody.

Molendyk said officers learned the vehicle was used in a residential break-and-enter in Cranbrook on Oct. 20. “A TV and various other items were located inisde the vehicle,” said Molendyk.

The 41-year-old man was slated to appear in Vernon Provincial Court Monday to face charges. No charges against the woman have been laid at this point.
