Southern Georgian Bay OPP are pleased to advise that all of the stolen WW I and WW II Canadian Forces Service Medals have been located and returned to the relieved family of the rightful owners.
The owners were two members from the same Midland family who survived their conflicts in the great wars and have since passed away. The surviving families of these servicemen are very pleased with the return of the medals and gratefully thank everyone who played a part in their return.
The OPP were called to assist in a theft investigation that was reported to police on January 28, 2018 in Waubaushene.
Investigators were able to locate a number of Canadian Forces Service Medals that matched property stolen from a Midland home that was victimized by a break, enter and theft in January of 2018.
Police seized the medals and have returned them to the delighted rightful owner and are seeking the assistance of the public in locating another ribbon bar still outstanding from the theft of Canadian Forces Service medals similar to those recovered.
Police and the victim would be most appreciative of any information in this ongoing investigation that would lead to the return of those still missing medals and or those persons responsible for the theft.
