CRIME:             THEFT FROM VEHICLE

DATE:               August 16, 2017

RCMP FILE:     2017-48633

On August 16th a man contacted West Kelowna RCMP to report a theft from his vehicle parked on the 2000 block of Mallard Drive in Sage Creek.   The owners had thought the vehicle was locked, but as there was no damage to the vehicle it may not have been.  Thieves took some Serengeti sunglasses, prescription sunglasses and 3 diamond rings that were in a sunglasses case.   One of the rings was a 14kt gold ring with a  .76 carat diamond raised with a smaller teardrop diamond on each side and tiny diamonds on the band.  Another was a 10 kt gold anniversary ring with 4 or 5 round diamonds set into the band.  On the inside of the band is the word “Love” with a diamond as the ‘O”.  The 3rd ring is a thinner 10 kt gold anniversary ring band with diamonds across the top.
