Family heirlooms valued at over $200,000 were stolen from a rural Yale Road property last month, and Chilliwack RCMP are looking for witnesses.

"Often in cases like this the monetary value is not what is important, it's the sentimental value that the goods hold," RCMP Const. Tracy Wolbeck said.

"This family would like their property back, and we are looking for any witnesses that may have seen something on that night," she said.

Sometime during the evening of June 22 or the early morning of June 23 thieves broke into a large garage on the unoccupied farm property.

A large amount of antique china, a gold plate and a large Chinese stamp collection were stolen, along with four large wooden crates filled with other items.

Anyone with information is asked to call the Chilliwack RCMP at 604-792-4611 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS.
