Long­time Prince Ge­orge box­ing coach Bob Pegues lost more than two decades of mem­o­ra­bilia when his ve­hi­cle was bro­ken into overnight Sun­day, Nanaimo RCMP said.

Pegues re­al­ized that the ve­hi­cle had been ran­sacked and his trea­sures were gone in the morn­ing. The ve­hi­cle was in the park­ing lot of the Rosedale Manor apart­ments on De­par­ture Bay Road when the theft took place.

Pegues re­cently re­lo­cated to Nanaimo from Prince Ge­orge af­ter run­ning a box­ing gym in the north­ern city, where he worked with hun­dreds of youth.

Among the items stolen are four pairs of box­ing gloves, a blue B.C. Box­ing Team jacket with “Coach” on the lapel, four box­ing tro­phies, two cham­pi­onship belts and a brown leather bag.

Any­one with in­for­ma­tion is asked to call Nanaimo RCMP at 250-754-2345 or go to nanaimocrimestop­
