Police Alert: Could These Be Your Stolen Goods?

Have you or anyone you know lost property in a burglary this year? Better check out this website, created by the Los Angeles Police Department. The property is displayed online.

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.

Photos of the property are available for viewing on the website www.lapdonline.org. To go directly to the images, click here.

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. 

If you believe your property is depicted in any of the photographs, you can send an email to lapdvctf@lapd.lacity.org or leave a message at (818) 644- 8091.

In your email, include a brief description of the item, the item number written on the yellow tab in the photograph, the name listed as the victim on your burglary report, the report number, the address where the burglary occurred, the date of the crime and a callback number.
