Salmon Arm RCMP are on the lookout for anyone sporting a wrestling medal after a few were stolen when a downtown home was ransacked on Sept. 13.
On that day, police responded to a suspicious occurrence after it was reported that an unoccupied residence appeared unsecured in the downtown residential area of Salmon Arm. When RCMP officers arrived, they confirmed a break and enter had occurred.
It was learned that neighbours heard a loud smash late in the evening and noticed three young males wearing sweaters standing by the property earlier in the evening.
Suspects had kicked a panel out of the front door, creating a loud smash before providing access into the residence. The entire residence was ransacked and several items both of financial and testamentary value were stolen. Some of the items stolen included Greco Roman Wrestling medals from Europe dated in the 1940’s.
Revelstoke Forensic Identification Section attended the scene and were successful in acquiring evidence.
Salmon Arm RCMP is respectfully requesting anyone with information regarding the whereabouts of these medals or any further information regarding the involved suspects, please contact the Salmon Arm RCMP Detachment at 250-832-6044 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477).
The Okanagan/Shuswap area has also recently fallen victim to a spree of vehicle thefts, again specifically targeting early 2000 year models of Ford and Dodge pick up trucks.
Salmon Arm RCMP is encouraging our Community Watch groups to maintain a close eye on our streets at night and to report suspicious persons or vehicles when granted.
