DATE: December 6, 2012

RCMP FILE: 2012-67392

A home on the 2300 block of Lacresta Road in Lake Country was broken into sometime between 12:30 and 8:20 PM on December 6. The residents returned home to find that suspects had smashed a glass window next to the door with a rock and reached in to unlock the deadbolt. The thieves rummaged through the master bedroom and left with three boxes: a jewelry box that looked like a mini dresser that contained costume jewelry and keepsakes, a brown wooden cigar type box that contained old letters, paperwork and old $2 bills and a black leather box with a rounded front that contained old WWI articles (pins, broach and belt buckle).
