More than 11,000 stolen items recovered by a police task force in the Southland this year can now be claimed by their rightful owners, with authorities urging theft-victims today to examine the property online.
The items were recovered during an operation that began earlier this year into so-called "fence" burglaries, in which criminals knowingly buy stolen property for later resale, police said. The task force engaged in extensive surveillance, culminating with the arrests of numerous suspects and the recovery of stolen goods.
Type the words "fence burglaries" into the search box and follow the prompts.
The burglaries occurred in the counties of Los Angeles, Orange, Riverside, Ventura and San Bernardino. So, even if the crime happened in the San Gabriel Valley, the property could still have found its way to Panorama City.
