Nanaimo RCMP seek rightful owner of lacrosse equipment

Lacrosse bag found July 23 near Alberni Outpost, say police.

Police are hoping the public can identify the owner of lacrosse equipment that was found by the Alberni Outpost location at Country Club Centre.

According to a Nanaimo RCMP press release, the bag and equipment were found underneath cardboard near garbage bins by the store July 23. Police say it could have been stolen from a vehicle or residence.

“The equipment consists of shoulder pads, knee pads, mouth guard, a team jersey and various other pieces of equipment,” said Const. Gary O’Brien, Nanaimo RCMP spokesman. “The bag is embroidered with ‘Team B.C. Lacrosse’ on the side and a number which most likely is the player’s who owns the gear.”

Anyone who knows who owns the equipment is asked to contact Nanaimo RCMP at 250-754-2345.
