Victims of numerous burglaries and car break-ins across El Paso County now have the chance to get their stolen property back.
This weekend the El Paso County Sheriff's Office has opened their evidence facility to allow possible victims to review hundreds of stolen items recovered during investigations by the sheriff's office and the Colorado Springs Police Department and claim their property. The items include everything from jewelry to electronics. All the stolen property is believed to have come from burglaries or car break-ins in the Monument, Black Forest, Broadmoor and Briargate areas.
"Even though arrests have been made, this investigation is ongoing and we're still looking at the potential for additional suspects and the potential for other locations where property might be kept," explained Lt. Jeff Kramer. "So there could be additional recoveries in the future."
If you think your property may be among the stolen items you're asked to come to the El Paso County Sheriff's Office Evidence Facility at 2749 E Las Vegas St. between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. on Sunday. Potential victims are asked to bring a photo ID and a copy of their case report. After this weekend you can also contact the sheriff's office to see if your property is among the recovered items.
