King County Sheriff’s Office seeks owners of stolen items
October 12, 2010
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 from 10 a.m. – 5 p.m. Oct. 14 at the Maple Valley precinct, 22300 S.E. 231st St. The office has set up a temporary message line at 206-205-3867.
Detectives invited victims of burglaries, thefts, vehicle prowls and similar incidents prior to Sept. 24 in 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 recovered a large amount of stolen property and contacted the sheriff’s office for assistance. Detectives believe the property was stolen during the past three months.
