Family heirlooms stolen from storage locker

The Prince George RCMP are asking the public to keep an eye out for some recently stolen family heirlooms.

On September 5, the Prince George RCMP received a report of a break-and-enter to a local storage facility. One of the storage lockers had its lock removed and the contents gone through, with several items missing.

Some of the items missing include:

  • Canadian Mint coin collection from between 1962-1964
  • Several Canadian $1.00 and $2.00 bills
  • A pearl necklace
  • Medals of service with the Canadian Armed Forces from 1934-1945
  • Some pieces of ID and old cheque books

“The break-and-enter occurred in the early afternoon on September 4, 2021,” said Cpl. Jennifer Cooper, media relations officer for the Prince George RCMP. “We are asking the public to keep an eye out for anyone trying to sell items that match these descriptions, as we would like to return them to their rightful owner. Some of the items carry a lot of sentimental value to the family.”
