A stash of coins and antiques has been recovered and Penticton RCMP are looking for the rightful owners.

On Feb. 3 Penticton and Summerland RCMP, with the help from the Emergency Response Team, stopped a vehicle with a number of suspects wanted on warrants. A duffle bag was seized from the vehicle, full of various personal items that appeared to be from a break and enter.

RCMP said a piece of jewelry (a Victorian brooch) has already been returned to its owner in Penticton. Investigators have been unable to locate owners of the other items which include a coin collection containing a variety of coins from Europe, Africa, Canada and the U.S., a variety of small antiques, a comic book collection stored in a photo album and a hockey card collection.

If you have been a victim of a break and enter in the Penticton area and are possibly the owner of these items, or have information on the owners of these items, contact the Penticton RCMP Drug Task Force at 250-492-4300.
