OPP Looking For Assistance In Antique Theft Investigation

KAWARTHA LAKES-Peterborough County OPP is asking for the public’s assistance in providing information related to a theft of an antique safe as well as rare valuable coins from a business in Otonabee-South Monaghan Township.

On August 1, 2023, OPP officers received a call from a business owner in Otonabee-South Monaghan Township advising that his business had been broken into sometime through the night and a safe as well as some antique coins had been taken. The safe, an antique Italian-made safe (image attached), Spanish silver coins from the 1700’s, British silver coins from the 1800s, and a silver necklace totalling an approximate value of nearly $10,000 were all taken. Police say damage was done to an entranceway when the suspect(s) forced their way into the business. No one was at the business when this occurred.

Investigators are actively looking for information that may lead to the identification of the suspect(s) involved in this theft. Police urge the public to call in tips on this case, or others, to the Peterborough OPP at 705-742-0401, the non-emergency line (888) 310-1122 or to Crime Stoppers.

With the passing of federal Bill C-18 you will no longer be able to access local news on Facebook or through a Google search once the bill is enacted. That means you won’t be able to find Kawartha 411 News on Facebook or through a Google search. This will devastate local news across the country including here in Kawartha Lakes. Contact your local member of parliament to let them know that local news matters to you and you want them to work with Google and Meta to come to an agreement.
