Daytime B&E in Parksville

Stolen items include rings, a gold chain and a Canadian coin collection

A Parksville woman came home to a shock Tuesday afternoon after running errands for several hours.

A resident of Butler Avenue in Parksville left her home on Nov. 14 at 8:30 a.m. to run some errands. When she returned home at 1 p.m., she noticed the side door in the carport was ajar and had been forced open. Once inside the woman discovered there were items strewn about the home.

It appeared that the suspect, who had fled, had entered the master bedroom, rifled through drawers, and then entered another bedroom where a filing cabinet had been opened.

Stolen items include rings, a gold chain and a Canadian coin collection.

Property owners are reminded to catalogue and film items of value in your home. This can be an invaluable tool for police should there be an investigation and will assist the insurance company with expediting a claim.

If anybody has any information about this incident, please call the Oceanside RCMP at 250-248-6111 or report anonymously through Crime Stoppers at 1-(800)-222-8477.
