Police in Clearwater are warning the public that not all that glitters is gold after people have purchased jewelry that turned out to be worthless.
Police want to make the public aware to be careful and are seeking any assistance that will aid in identifying who these people are.
On June 8 at 8:34 p.m. Clearwater RCMP received a report that two days prior a male and female in a white or grey car, approached a Blue River female at her residence on Main street.
The couple, who spoke very little english, and had heavy accents said they had car trouble and would sell her some gold jewelry so they could get their car fixed despite having pulled up in a functioning vehicle.
The complainant could only provide that the car was white or grey and that the male had dark hair, medium build and a small black moustache.
Neither got out of the vehicle.
The resident bought six rings and two chains. She in turn sold the jewelry to a friend who was going to take the items to a jeweler in Kamloops.
Upon attending the jewelers on June 8 the friend was told it was knock off Chinese jewelry and not worth anything.
The Blue River resident said the couple had left a business card of an apparently fake international transport company with two phone numbers that police are investigating.
Clearwater RCMP are asking anyone with any information that could aid in this investigation to contact them at 250-674-2237 or B.C. Crimestoppers at 1-800-222-8477, if they wish to remain anonymous.
