Police have posted additional photos online of recently seized stolen artifacts.
Photos of 10 new items can be viewed at http://www.rcmp-grc.gc.ca/ns/features-envedette/PublicAssistance-L'aideDuPublic-eng.htm. The new items include an antique hockey jersey, German medals and an antique torch, to name a few.
Officers carried out a search warrant at a home in Fall River in mid-January and found it packed with more than 800 valuable historical artifacts allegedly stolen from private collectors across Atlantic Canada.
On March 1, RCMP carried out another search warrant at a home on Yerevan Drive in Sackville and seized sheet music, books, war medals, and a letter written by George Washington allegedly stolen from Dalhousie University.
Investigators have been working with local universities and other experts to determine ownership and value of many of the seized items. The investigation has become a significant undertaking for those involved. With the volume of seized items, including those of historical importance, the investigation is expected to take months to complete.
Anyone who recognizes or can provide information on an item is asked to call (902) 426-1607 between the hours of 8 a.m. and 4 p.m. Monday through Friday.
