Blackfalds RCMP are trying to locate the owners of about nine pieces of jewelry that were seized at a Red Deer pawn shop this week.

Police recovered a pawn shop receipt from one of the suspects involved in an incident in Blackfalds where an officer was injured and his patrol car was totaled on Nov. 13.

“It is pretty common now when we get these stolen vehicles with these multiple people in them that it is a just a cesspool of previous crime,” said Cpl. Barry Larocque. “Now it’s a matter of taking the things and trying to identify who they might belong to.”

Larocque said his phone has been ringing off the hook with people wondering about the jewelry that is likely stolen.

He said the jewelry would have been stolen before the incident on Nov.13.

An officer was checking on a stolen vehicle in a back alley behind a house when he noticed five people get into a truck at the front of the house.

Larocque described the jewelry as “older type and not contemporary” and not high-end jewelry.

Police are holding about nine pieces of jewelry, including a couple of watches, rings and a locket that are available for viewing once a description is provided to the detachment as to what a person maybe missing.

If anyone had jewelry go missing within the month of October or November and wishes to make an inquiry, call Blackfalds RCMP at 403-885-3300.
