Hey Kelowna, is this your giant ice cream cone?

Const. Steve Holmes holds a giant ice cream cone discovered on the front lawn of a local homeowner.

KELOWNA - RCMP are looking to find the rightful owner of a giant ice cream cone and admit they are ‘licked' without further information.

A Bertram Street resident woke early yesterday morning, July 12, to find a large ice cream cone sitting on his front lawn, according to police spokesman Const. Steve Holmes.

“The homeowner stated he had no idea how the cone managed find its way onto his lawn and, although tempted to keep it, he called police as he’s not a fan of a cone that had whipped cream on top.”

Police retrieved it and tried to reunite the cone with its owner without luck. Holmes says the cone appears to be of a size that it would be used for advertising outside an ice cream store but no one has come forward asking about it.

“There doesn’t appear to be any mountings or attachments on it,” he says.

Holmes says the rightful owner can claim the cone at the Doyle Street detachment.

“If the owner would please give us a call and can identify the flavours or come up with some concrete way of identifying it."
