Keying in on a suspect well-known to them, Vernon RCMP stumbled upon an item after arresting the man.

Keys.

Lots of them.

Vernon RCMP task force members arrested a 29-year-old man Tuesday who had outstanding warrants for uttering threats.

While dealing with the suspect, a number of items suspected of being stolen were seized including 22 sets of keys.

“The police are asking the public if you are the victim of a theft, where keys were taken or have lost keys, to contact them,” said Vernon RCMP spokesperson Gord Molendyk. “They have several photographs of all of the recovered keys at the Vernon RCMP Detachment. You can attend the front counter and look at them during regular working hours 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., Monday to Friday.”

Items belonging to other people and a small quantity of drugs were also seized during the man’s arrest.

Police released a photo of the most recognizable sets of keys.

If you recognize your keys in the photograph please contact Cst. Woon or Cst. Audley at 250-545-7171 as the RCMP would like to get them returned to you and associate them to their files.
