Stolen guns and a thief caught on camera highlight this week’s unsolved crimes released by Crimestoppers.

A man contacted Kelowna RCMP on Dec. 3 when he discovered that his vehicle had been entered overnight while parked in secure underground parking on the 900 block of Academy Way in Kelowna.

Another crime saw several guns stolen in a break and enter occurring between 10 p.m. on Nov. 30 and 11 a.m. on Dec. 1 in the 500 block of Curlew Drive in the Mission area of Kelowna.
