Comox Valley RCMP have arrested an alleged thief who was in possession of a large quantity of stolen jewelry, watches, and a lock of hair.

They are now hoping to reunite the stolen jewelry and other items to their rightful owners. 

“It is important to report all thefts to police, no matter how minor they may seem,” said Constable Monike Terragi, Comox Valley RCMP. 

“It’s these reports that help us establish crime trends in the Comox Valley and help us to return stolen property to owners when recovered,” Terragi added.

In an email to Victoria Buzz, police stated that they believe the items were stolen over the past couple of weeks, but are unable to confirm with exact certainty at this time.
