Several pieces of rare jewelry were stolen when a residence in the 600-block of Linton Street in Coquitlam was broken into last month and Mounties are looking for help recovering them.

According to Coquitlam RCMP, the thieves kicked in the front door of the unoccupied home, ransacked it and got away with jewelry, money and electronic equipment.

“Our investigators conducted extensive neighbourhood inquiries but were not able to come up with any new information,” said Coquitlam RCMP Cpl. Jamie Chung. “Several pieces of the stolen jewelry are quite unique. We are turning to the public for assistance and hoping someone may have come across them.”
