Just before 5:00 p.m. on February 11, 2020, a man entered a jewellery store located on the 3100 block of Lakeshore Road in Kelowna.  The male used the guise of shopping for a gift for his wife.  He may have used two other customers to distract the sales staff as he took off with an expensive 14k yellow gold necklace that consists of 60-80 thin interlinking ovals (shown in photo).  The necklace has a trademark Viking ship stamp soldered into it.
