Police appeal for info on silver theft

Chilliwack RCMP want to replace silver bars with steel bars for the perpetrators of a “blockbuster heist” of more than half a ton in silver ingots from a Chilliwack home last month.

Chilliwack RCMP want to replace silver bars with steel bars for the perpetrators of a “blockbuster heist” of more than half a ton in silver ingots from a Chilliwack home last month.

“The theft of $750,000 in silver is not something typically seen outside of a Hollywood action movie,” RCMP Const. Bryan Martell says in a news release.

“The sheer quantity of the theft, and the daytime home invasion makes this offence unique and concerning,” he said.

The Chilliwack RCMP believe there are people in the community who have information about the crime, and they are urging them to call investigators at 604-792-4611 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS.

“Chilliwack is our community, and although these criminals may think they can pull off a blockbuster heist, we are eager to return these silver bars to their owner, and put the offenders behind solid steel bars,” Martell said.

Two males dressed in uniforms entered the house on Imperial Street at about 1:40 p.m. on Feb. 9, roughed up the occupant, and made off with about 1,400 lbs. of silver bars.

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