Kelowna RCMP seek to return tool box seized downtown

Are these your tools?

The Kelowna RCMP is asking for the public's help with identifying the owner of a recovered toolbox.

Police were called for a report of a suspicious man in the area of Doyle Avenue and St. Paul Street on Nov. 18 at 8:35 a.m.

While speaking with the man, officers saw the man was in possession of a new Norco mountain bike and large Milwaukee toolbox.

Police say the man was not able to show proof of ownership and officers believed the items were stolen.

In an attempt to identify the owner of the bike, officers brought it to a local bike store. The store assisted RCMP with the investigation and was able to find a record of the owner on file.

The bike was valued at $800 and the owner had not reported it as stolen, as they were not aware it was missing.

Police are trying to identify the owner of the tool box. It is a Milwaukee Packout Modular Tool Box Storage System valued at over $300.

“When it was recovered, there were tools inside of it as well as a few unique items that only the owner would be able to identify,” said Cpl. Tammy Lobb.

“We would like the owner to contact us so we can return their property to them”.

If you are the owner of the tool box or anyone with any information as to who the owner may be, you are asked to email Kelowna RCMP or remain anonymous by calling Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
