Police in Nanaimo is asking for help to locate the owner of a camera and lens in their possession which is believed to be stolen.
Nanaimo RCMP says a Good Samaritan contacted police after being given the items as a Christmas gift from a person they know as being involved in property-related crimes in the city.
In a release, the RCMP says the person felt they could not keep the gift and turned it over to police.
Investigators have not been able to locate the owner through the serial numbers or model number for the camera or the lens.
Police ask anyone recognizes the equipment or has information on the owner to call Nanaimo RCMP.
