Rings handed in

On Sept. 14, a representative from the Cedar Crest Society brought a case containing rings that had been left in the society’s drop off bin overnight.

The society had concerns that these rings may be stolen, but they are not associated to any current theft investigation in 100 Mile House.

The rings will be held at the 100 Mile House RCMP detachment office for 90 days. If not claimed, they will be returned to the Cedar Crest Society.

Anyone bringing forward a claim of ownership will have to provide a description of the case and rings.
