RCMP are trying to recover a set of service medals that were stolen from a vehicle in Blockhouse, N.S.
Police say the theft happened Nov. 14 when a vehicle parked outside a residence on Cornwall Road was broken into.
Several items were taken, including four service medals, a camouflage rucksack, trench spade shovel, camouflage carrying pouch, camouflage vest, two sleeping bags, a tactical helmet and knee-high winter boots.
Someone driving by the next day found most of the items strewn in a ditch not far from the scene.
However, the medals and a knife were still missing.
The medals are described as a New Zealand Operational Service Medal, a New Zealand Afghanistan Primary Medal, a New Zealand Special Service Medal and a New Zealand Defence Medal with regular clasp.
Anyone with information is asked to call Lunenburg County District RCMP at 902-634-8674 or submit a tip anonymously through Crime Stoppers.
