A Prince George family had their family heirlooms, including military medals from the Second World War, stolen from a storage locker last month.
On Sept. 5, Prince George RCMP received a report of a break-and-enter at a local storage facility. Thieves removed the lock and stole several items from the unit. The break in occurred in the early afternoon of Sept. 4, RCMP said.
The police are asking the public to keep an eye out for someone selling any of the following items: Canadian military medals from 1934 to 1945, a pearl necklace, a Canadian Mint coin collection from between 1962 and 1964, several Canadian $1 and $2 bills, old cheque books and several pieces of ID.
“We are asking the public to keep an eye out for anyone trying to sell items that match these descriptions, as we would like to return them to their rightful owner,” RCMP spokesperson Cpl. Jennifer Cooper said. “Some of the items carry a lot of sentimental value to the family.”
Anyone with information about this crime is asked to call Prince George RCMP at 250-561-3300. Tips can also be made anonymously by calling Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS(8477) or online at www.northernbccrimestoppers.ca (English only).
