KAMLOOPS - A series of tips have come in after numerous expensive items were stolen from a music store last week.

Mike Miltimore, the owner of Lee's Music, says he has an idea about who might be behind the April 8 theft and is hoping to speak to a man who sold the team’s stolen laptop back to them.

“It’s frustrating; the guy that stole the stuff doesn’t know what he’s done,” Miltimore says.

Along with the laptop, the store is without a mixer, a speaker and wireless microphones. Miltimore says the mixer is basically useless as it’s only a part of a larger sound system. It won’t work alone and the larger system won’t run properly without it.

“It’s totally useless (to them) but very high value,” he says.

Miltimore adds because the piece is being sold alone it’s unlikely anyone will want it.

While they wait for more information, Miltimore is putting the call out to whoever stole the items and asking they turn themselves in or at least return the items.

“The best thing that could happen for us is for the guy to phone me. We just want the stuff back,” he says. “It is a serious amount of equipment; the police are taking it very seriously."

To contact Miltimore, you can email him at or call 250-319-5050.
