Family heirloom ring stolen from Lake home

Lake Cowichan RCMP are investigating another break-and-enter. While many of the recent thefts that have plagued the community have been from cars and outbuildings, this one happened at a residence in the area of Grant’s Lake Road and Natara Place on Feb. 17.

"The homeowner was temporarily away and the culprit(s) gained entry and took a ladies ring and a cell phone," said Const. Grant Desmet, spokesperson for the Lake Cowichan RCMP.

"The ring was a family heirloom and holds great sentimental value."

The break-in occurred sometime between 11:30 a.m. and 1 p.m. Police are asking anyone with information regarding the incident to call 250-749-6668 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477).
