An unpleasant surprise for a Nelson family who’d just returned from an extended vacation.
Nelson Police Dept say suspects had entered the unoccupied home and were using it as a flop house. Also jewelry and other precious items were stolen.
A police forensics team are investigating.
Meanwhile there’s been a rash of thefts from vehicles in Nelson.
They’re being targetted all over the city and police say it’s not uncommon for culprits to walk down a row of parked vehicles looking for the unlocked ones.
