KELOWNA - Central Okanagan Crime Stoppers is looking for some help from the public with a couple unsolved thefts in Kelowna.

The first was on Feb. 3 when suspects broke into a home during the day, between 9:15 a.m. and 2:00 p.m., on Guisachan Place, according to a media release. They took a variety of items, including a marble jewellery box and everything in it, a Dell laptop, a wedding ring and a pair of watches.

A MasterCard was also taken and used at local businesses. RCMP would like to talk to the man caught on security video using the stolen credit card. He is a person of interest.

Crime Stoppers says on Feb. 11 people out for a walk at Mill Creek Regional Park near the Kelowna Airport heard the alarm on their blue 2008 Jeep Cherokee. When they got back to the vehicle there were no signs of a forced entry, but the woman's purse was moved. Someone had taken cash along with bank and credit cards from her wallet.

Banks were notified of the theft, but suspects were able to withdraw cash before the cards were cancelled. Kelowna police would like to speak to two people of interest, whose images were caught on surveillence video.

Police would like to the suspects pictured about a vehicle theft Feb. 11, 2017 in Kelowna.
