1. Found Property
  2. Claiming Property

Depending on the situation, there are a number of ways to handle found property.

  • If the property looks suspicious or like it could be associated with a crime scene, please do not touch or move the items and call 911.
  • Found property should be turned into the agency in the same City or County where it was found. If you are not sure, please include the location of where the property was found when you call 911.

If the property appears to be of some value and not suspicious, you may call 911 and: 

  • have an Officer respond to the location where it is found or,
  • you can bring most items into the Police Department.
