VERNON - Police are investigating two recent home invasions that may be connected.

Around 7:30 a.m. on Friday, May 8, Vernon RCMP responded to two separate home invasions. 

In both incidents people entered the residences, one in the 3900 block of 32 Street and one in the 3900 block of 27 Avenue, while the homeowners were present, RCMP spokesperson Gord Molendyk said in a release issued Monday, May 11.
