RCMP looking for lost stamp collection’s owner

Officers with the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) in Kelowna are looking for the owner of a stamp collection found in an industrial area in the city’s northeast end.

Found by a bystander near Adams Road in October, the stamps have nothing to identify their owner, and no one has come forward to claim them. Police added no reports of thefts of a similar collection have been received.

“It is obvious to us that this stamp collection took quite some time to assemble, and no doubt is very valuable to its owner,” said RCMP Constable Robyn Boffy. “To claim the collection, police are asking its rightful owner to come forward and provide specific details of the collection itself and the item used to cover and encase the collection.”

Anyone with any information is asked to contact Boffy at 250-762-3300.
