Some unique items were lifted from a home in Lake Country this weekend, and Mounties are asking anyone with information to come forward.

The break and enter is believed to have occurred Feb. 5, at a residence in the 9800 block of Winview Road.

“It appeared that a rear door was forced open and the thief or thieves helped themselves to some hockey memorabilia in the form of eight signed NHL hockey jerseys,” said Const. Steve Holmes in a statement.

“One of the jerseys, signed by Trevor Linden, was framed as was a signed 2010 Canadian Olympic Men’s Hockey Team picture.”

Two pedal bikes, one worth $5,000, and two laptop computers were also taken.

Police are investigating and are asking for anyone with any information about this theft to contact the Kelowna RCMP at 250-762-3300 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 or visit the Crime Stoppers website to report.
