Crime Stoppers is asking for the public’s assistance to identify a person of interest after a thief made off with a princess cut diamond engagement ring in Kelowna last November.

Police said that while a Kelowna family was at work and school, a burglar broke into their home in the 400-block of Farris Road on Nov. 10.

The robber stole not only the engagement ring but a wedding band, several high-end watches including a Rolex, an Apple MacBook and credit cards.
