Two autographed Vancouver Canucks jerseys were allegedly stolen earlier this month from the BC Hockey Hall of Fame in Penticton.
According to South Okanagan Similkameen Crime Stoppers, a man entered the hall at the South Okanagan Events Centre around 12:30 p.m. on Aug. 14.
He’s then alleged to have broken into two cabinets and stolen the autographed jerseys of Daniel and Henrik Sedin, according to the crime-prevention group’s Facebook page.
He then left the scene in a 1995-2001 green Ford Explorer.
According to BC Hockey Hall of Fame executive director Blain Ford, the jerseys, hanging in separate displays, were donated by the Canucks when the two brothers were inducted into the hall in July 2019.
Anyone with information is asked to help identify this “misguided Canuck fan,” the social media post said, by calling South Okanagan Similkameen Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
