KAMLOOPS - A Kamloops man who was under a court-ordered curfew made a careless mistake last week when he opened his door to an RCMP officer checking to make sure he was home.

The officer noticed the man was wearing a distinctive gold chain around his neck that looked exactly like one stolen from Fifth Avenue Jewellers on Sept. 17.

The officer left but applied for a search warrant that evening.

Early the next morning, Dec. 10, police returned with the search warrant and arrested the 28-year-old man for possession of property obtained by crime and the $4,000 necklace was seized, according to an RCMP media release.
