Owner claims gold bars stolen from West Kelowna storage
West Kelowna RCMP are investigating a break-and-enter, but this is no ordinary break-in.
Police say the theft happened last week at a storage facility in the industrial area of West Kelowna.
They say the owner of a storage unit was contacted November 10 after the alarm to the unit went off.
Police say the owner was unable to check on his personal possessions until November 12 when he realized that 5,000 ounces of silver and gold was missing.
Police say the precious metals were in various forms including coins and bars. They say some cash and a rare acrylic sculpture are also missing.
Police estimate the theft was worth at least $150,000.
