VERNON - A commercial alarm sent Vernon police to a local business last night where officers found not only the front window smashed but also the security bars pried open.

RCMP say yesterday, Sept. 16, at approximately 10:30 p.m., police responded to a commercial alarm at Polar Battery at 4313 25 Ave. Upon arrival, officers found the business with a smashed front window and security bars that had been pried open to gain access.

"Once the suspects gained entry into the business, four to six power converters were taken, worth approximately $1,000 each." Const. Kelly Brett says in the release. "These batteries are commonly used in RV’s and cabins for converting power and will have the brand name of Power Bright on the top in white lettering."
