Red Deer RCMP recovered several pieces of stolen sports memorabilia in December and want to find their rightful owners.

Sports-related items include:

• Signed, numbered, limited edition Patrick Roy print.

• Framed NHL anniversary set of nine hockey cards featuring members of the Montreal Canadiens.

• Hockey player figurine and assorted hockey cards.

• Signed Red Deer Rebels hockey stick.

• Olympic coin set.

Other stolen property recovered include a rectangular slip tank and two large, mismatched truck tires.

Anyone missing these items is asked to call the exhibits staff at the Red Deer RCMP at 403-406-2574, from Monday to Friday between 8 a.m. and 4 p.m. People must provide proof of ownership in order to claim items — that may be a photo or a detailed description.

RCMP seize significant amounts of stolen property each year, and make efforts to reunite people with their stolen property whenever possible.

Citizens can increase their chances of being reunited with their property by recording serial numbers, marking their property with identifying information, saving proofs of purchase and/or taking photographs of unusual items that will prove their ownership.
