Mounties seek to return jewellry stolen from Peachland and West Kelowna


WEST KELOWNA - Mounties in West Kelowna are trying to reunite people with items stolen during multiple break-ins in the West Kelowna and Peachland areas.

RCMP spokesperson Cpl. Jesse O’Donaghey said in a press release police recovered a large quantity of small personal items such as rings, necklaces, bracelets, earrings, sunglasses and watches.

O’Donaghey says thieves often target those types of items during break-ins because they are easy to carry and don’t typically have serial numbers.

Police made the seizure Dec. 7 during a search of a local home, the release said.

Residents who do not have their police file number can contact Const. Richard Schuhmacher or the front counter staff at the West Kelowna Detachment at 250-768-2880 for assistance.
