Salmon Arm RCMP has been busy recovering property that is believed to be abandoned by potential thieves and now they're ready to get it all back to rightful owners.

Staff Sgt. Scott West said in a press release, officers have recovered more than nine bicycles.

The makes of these bikes include Mongoose, Trec, Diadora, Infinity, Specialized, Schwinn, Rayvolt and Norco, among others.

A small Honda dirt bike that has not been claimed also remains in RCMP custody, West said.

"We have also recovered a small coin collection, saws, drills, construction tools and generators," he said. "Some of these pieces of property do have distinguishing marks on them that the rightful owner would have knowledge of."

If you have lost any of these items and think they may be yours please call the Salmon Arm RCMP Detachment at 250-832-6044 during business hours, and ask to speak to the exhibit custodian.

"Give that person the best description of your missing item and we will do our best to reunite you and your property," he said.
