The theft took place in Montreal's Outremont borough in February 2020.
And now, in March 2021, Montreal police "are asking for the public's help to locate the stolen jewellery and solve the circumstances of this theft."
When asked why this event is only being brought to the public's attention a year later, SPVM spokesperson Raphaël Bergeron said, "we have been advised of the situation a couple weeks/a couple months ago, instead of when it [happened]."
"So, that's why we came out with this information."
The SPVM provided photos of some of the items that were stolen, including a massive emerald ring.

If you happen to know anything about the incident, you could possibly be paid a reward for sharing what you know, "depending on the quality of the information received."
