The Lacombe Police Service would like to remind the public to be aware of people attempting to sell gold and high value jewelry.
Police have responded to a number of complaints of people being approached in mall parking lots and banks by people attempting to sell gold and jewellery which they say is real. In the end the gold/jewelry turns out to be fake.

The jewelry in the end is actually fake,” States Constable Vaughan Bleasdale. “We want to remind the public that if something sounds too good to be true, it probably is and to call police if approached by a suspicious persons selling these products.”
