Chance to collect lost or stolen items ends March 6

"(People) need to write down the serial number before it (the item) gets taken from them, or at least maintain copies of receipts," Schneider said.

 Officers have other ways to link items with their owners; for instance, a GPS’s home address directly leads the owner.

Additionally, owners can visit the police station and describe their missing items.

“If the description of the property is close enough to match the property, it is then turned over to them," Schneider said.

Unclaimed property is destroyed or allocated for department use, Schneider said.

"It is extremely rare that any of that stuff gets used for the department," he said.
