First Nations art stolen from Chinatown business in Victoria
The Victoria Police Department is asking for public help in locating a First Nations piece of fine art stolen from a business in the 500-block of Fisgard Street last month.
VicPD are issuing a public appeal in the Aug. 16 theft in a bid for further information on a person of interest.
The suspect allegedly picked up the $1,600 mask and simply walked out of the store, said VicPD Const. Mike Russell.
"Although (officers) have a strong suspect in the case, the mask remains at large," Russell said.
Anyone with information as to the whereabouts of the mask is asked to call VicPD at 250-995-7654 or report anonymously through Crime Stoppers at 1-800-TIPS (8477).
