RCMP Seek Public Assistance & Issue Warning

Decorative spoon display owner sought

 The Nanaimo RCMP is asking for the public's assistance in locating the owner of an antique spoon collection, and advising of an aggressive male going door to door in the north end of Nanaimo.

The spoon collection was recovered during a search warrant conducted in late December 2015. To date the owner has not been identified. Investigators said when they came across the item during the search of a Nanaimo home; it stood out like a sore thumb. Investigators seized the decorative spoon display for safe keeping. Charges are not being considered against the persons found in possession of it. 

Aggressive Door Knocker Warning

The second incident involves a male going door to door claiming to be looking for work. At approximately 3:30 pm on Wednesday January 27, the male went to an elderly woman's home on Shelbourne Drive and asked if there was work he could do to make some money. He told the home owner he was down on his luck and needed a break. Feeling sorry for him, she gave him 20 dollars and asked him to remove an old dishwasher from her yard. With money in hand and her being distracted for a moment, the male disappeared and dishwasher stayed in place. In another incident, the same male was confronted when found on the grounds of the Sharmin mobile home park on Metral Drive. Park managers said the male was aggressive but did leave when asked to do so.

The suspect male is white, 45-55, scruffy looking and wore a dark coloured jacket with green sleeves. He also had on bright coloured shoes. Additionally , if you know who owns the decorative spoon display, please give the Nanaimo RCMP a call at 250-754-2345.
