Several thousand ounces of silver bullion worth an estimated $750,000 was stolen during a home invasion last week in Chilliwack by two men who may have been wearing uniforms.

Police said two males entered the home in the 10000-block Imperial Street near the Meadowlands golf club at about 1:40 p.m. on Feb. 9 and roughed up the occupant.

“The victim believes the suspects may have been wearing uniforms,” RCMP Const. Tracy Wolbeck said. “We are hopeful that given the time of day, someone saw something and can give us some helpful information.”

The two suspects may be linked to a white, sedan-type vehicle, possibly a Toyota Camry or Pontiac G6.

The two males are described as white males in their early 30s, with medium builds, dark hair and facial hair.

The victim, who told police he did not know his attackers, received “several bruises” during the robbery.

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