Surveillance footage leads to arrest and charges for theft

A 35 year old Vernon man is facing charges of theft after video footage circulates in the media.

On July 27 2022, a news article was published by Castanet showing a man checking a pickup truck and later entering into a storage compartment attached to the vehicle while it was parked at a business in the 5200 block of 24th Street, Vernon.

Investigators with the Vernon North Okanagan RCMP Targeted Policing Unit reviewed the video and through further investigation were able to identify a suspect. 35 year old Emerson Bunn has been charged with theft under $5000. Bunn was arrested and remains in custody pending a future court date.

Police want to remind the public to report crime and suspicious activity when it happens, states Corporal Neil Body, Media Relations Officer for the Vernon North Okanagan RCMP. All complaints of crime reported to the police will be investigated, followed up on, and could lead to charges.
