A stolen prop isn't something police are called upon to investigate often, but one thief recognized the value of one of them.

North Cowichan/Duncan RCMP is seeking public assistance in the theft of a polished prop worth about $10,000. A resident reported the theft June 7 after it disappeared from Scott Road at the Tansor Industrial Park.

The prop is huge, seven feet tall and seven feet wide, and is inscribed in brass with "Beach Drive Bed and Breakfast.''

The investigating officer has recovered some portions of the prop but is seeking to locate the remainder of it.

Police are asking if any businesses or individuals have been propositioned about buying portions of the prop to contact them at 250-748-5522 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
