Thief steals hockey gear from VIU student

Hockey bag stolen from student’s car parked on Wall Street

Police in Nanaimo hope the public will keep an eye open for a rare hockey bag stolen from a Vancouver Island University student.

The vehicle was broken into sometime between midnight and 9:45 a.m. Thursday in a parking lot at 111 Wall St.

The owner of the vehicle told investigators several psychology textbooks and his HP laptop were taken, but the one item he was most distressed over losing was his hockey gear. The gear bag is black, yellow and white and has a logo of a First Nations chief on the outside. The bag held all his Bauer and Easton branded hockey gear except his skates and stick.

Anyone with information about the theft or items taken is asked to call the Nanaimo RCMP at 250-754-2345 and quote file No. 2018-43689. To remain anonymous contact Crime Stoppers at www.nanaimocrimestoppers.com or call 1-800-2222-8477.
