Are you missing a saddle or muffler, ask RCMP?

Police are trying to track down the rightful owners after a variety of items were turned in to the North Cowichan/Duncan RCMP detachment.

On April 14, a vehicle muffler in very good condition was handed over to the police.

"Chances are it has never been attached to a vehicle," detachment spokesperson Cpl. Krista Hobday said.

On April 17, a western-style riding saddle was recovered during an investigation.

Anyone who has had a muffler stolen from their business or home, or who is missing a saddle should contact the North Cowichan/Duncan Exhibit Office between 1 and 3 p.m. on Monday through Friday. If possible, please call ahead for an appointment.

Further information about the items will he required before they can be returned.

"Items that are turned in to police are destroyed after 90 days if the rightful owner cannot be identified," Hobday pointed out. "Some items are returnable to the finder of lost things, bicycles are the exception to this."
