Four more items, including a stolen handgun, was returned to owners Monday, August 5th, when Oregon State Police (OSP) hosted a second opportunity to help return seized property recovered during a recent investigation.
According to Trooper Nick Rhoades, 42 pieces of personal property including jewelry, pictures, tools, family heirlooms, and electronics have been returned to owners during two scheduled viewings.
Monday's conditional invitation to view recovered property was open to any Marion/Polk County area theft/burglary victims who reported incidents to a law enforcement agency before January 15, 2013.
Individuals who came to view recovered property were required to be prepared to provide a reporting agency case number with a list of items for verification. If no report was taken, a sales receipt and serial number was required to prove ownership. Individuals who were not able to attend either viewing opportunity may also call Trooper Rhoades at (503) 378-3387 ext. 31300 to try and schedule a different date and time.
The first viewing by appointment only in early July returned 37 items to owners.
