King County Sheriff’s Office investigators plan to display dozens of items stolen from rural King County homes.
The unclaimed property includes bicycles, computers, hand tools, ladders, lawn mowers, power tools, snowboards, wakeboards and water skis. Investigators plan to display the items Thursday from 10 a.m. – 5 p.m. at the Maple Valley precinct, 22300 S.E. 231st St.
Detectives invited victims of burglaries, thefts, vehicle prowls and similar incidents prior to Sept. 24 in the southeastern King County to view the remaining unclaimed property.
If the incident occurred in a jurisdiction served by another agency or a contract city, victims need a copy of the incident report to view the property.
The items stem from the Sept. 24 arrest of a person in Spring Lake. State Department of Corrections officers arrested the person on a warrant. The officers a large amount of stolen property and contacted the sheriff’s office for assistance.
Detectives believe the property had been stolen during the past three months. Though the sheriff’s office has returned a substantial amount of property to victims, many items remain unclaimed.
