Missing decorations dropped off at Citizen

Are you missing a reindeer and a polar bear from your Christmas display? The Citizen may have them.

On Dec. 17 the Citizen printed a letter from Karen Kahl of North Cowichan explaining that a pink cat sculpture had been stolen from the Christmas display in her front yard.

She asked for the cat’s return, and offered that someone could drop it off at the Citizen offices no questions asked.

The cat was returned to the Citizen offices last week, and Kahl is thrilled to get her cat back, though it was a little worse for wear.

The culprit left a note with the items, explaining that they were intoxicated at the time of the crime and not thinking clearly. The alcohol consumption also meant that when the thief went to return the items, he or she did not remember which house things had been taken from.

Which explains why the Citizen is now also in possession of reindeer and polar bear sculptures returned by the same person.

If you believe these items are yours, please come by the Citizen, preferably with some proof of ownership (a photo would be good), and pick them up. The Citizen offices are at 251 Jubilee St. in Duncan.
