Kelowna RCMP search for owner of crossbow

RCMP believe the crossbow was stolen in late July

Police are now looking for the rightful owner, of what they believe to be an expensive crossbow, after a suspicious set of circumstances led to police to seize what they believe to be stolen property in late July.

On July 29 at approximately 5:30 p.m., RCMP was dispatched to a found property report in the 3000 block of Pandosy Street. A member of the public witnessed an individual stash a weapon inside a boat on a construction site before leaving the area.
