Nanaimo RCMP are searching for the owners of an assortment of lawn statues and ornaments after a homeowner found them scattered in her garden early Tuesday morning.
The items were found in a common garden on Robbie Place, located near Spencer Road off of Meredith Road, by a woman who noticed the ornaments had been carefully placed around the garden when she was about to let her dog out into the yard.
Assuming they were taken from nearby homes, she called the police.
Mounties collected the items, which included several garden statues, gnomes, solar lights, a plastic birdbath, a child’s tricycle and a pail of coloured chalk.
Const. Gary O’Brien, Nanaimo RCMP spokesman, said the items were likely taken as a prank.
Anyone missing lawn ornaments is asked to call Nanaimo RCMP detachment at 250-754-2345.
