Two large salmon carvings that were stolen from the Ruby Creek Art Gallery gazebo just after 2:30 a.m. on Jan. 5 have now been returned undamaged. The gallery, which is owned and operated by the Skawahlook First Nation, launched a social media campaign after the theft and released raw surveillance footage on their Facebook page. The video showed two people pull up in a white pickup and disappear w\ith the carvings less than two minutes later. The gallery had offered a reward for information leading to their return. They were dropped off at the gallery sometime overnight between Tuesday and Wednesday in a TV box with a note.
