The West Kelowna RCMP are looking to return two firearms to their rightful owner.

On Friday, Mar. 15, the West Kelowna RCMP received a report that firearms had been found in the 1500-block of Rosewood Drive.

The two long guns were found under a piece of plywood in a makeshift fort near a trail head where children regularly play.

The guns were in poor condition and appeared to have been left in the weather for some time.

Police seized the firearms and have exhausted all other efforts to identify the owner.

The rifles are described as:

Lee Enfield 1918 Military Rifle

Jonathan Browning .50 cal Black Powder Mountain Rifle

If you believe these rifles to be yours, please contact Cst CONLON of the West Kelowna RCMP at 250-768-2880. In order to claim them, proof of ownership in the form of a receipt or previous registration would be required.
