Nanaimo RCMP seek owner of camera believed to have been stolen

Camera and lens received as Christmas gift and turned over to police

Police in Nanaimo have a camera and lens they believe are stolen and would like to return them to their owner.

A Good Samaritan contacted the Nanaimo RCMP in late December and told investigators the camera and lens was received as a Christmas gift from a person who they know is actively involved in property related crimes throughout Nanaimo. Based on this, the recipient could not keep the gift and decided to turn it over to the RCMP. Investigators have had no luck tracking the owner through the serial or model numbers for the camera or lens.

Anyone who recognizes this equipment or has information on the lawful owner, please contact the Nanaimo RCMP at 250-754-2345.
