Canadian thieves picked a bountiful target for a robbery.
Valuable jewelry was taken–along with a pair of championship rings belonging to the former owner of the Montreal Canadiens.
It’s not exactly something you can put on eBay.
A Stanley Cup championship ring is pretty personal and usually contains the name of the recipient. But thieves in Toronto aren’t likely all that concerned with how they turn their goods into cash.
Police in Toronto are looking for a pair on Montreal Canadiens Stanley Cup rings that were stolen during a break-in at a mansion belonging to the wealthy Bronfman family.
More than $1 million in jewelry was taken during the theft which took place on Saturday. 60 pieces of jewelry and a very big safe were carted out from the home of the family which once owned the Canadiens.
“The family really wants this stuff back; it’s sentimental,” Toronto police Det.-Const. Frank Lazzaro told News1130 radio which was glad to comply with the family’s request for publicity to help smoke out the crooks.
