Police look for owners of stolen goods

Toshiba laptop March 2012.JPG(CNS): Police are looking for the owners of two pieces of stolen property recovered last week. A toolkit and a laptop, both suspected of being stolen, were recovered by police last week during the course of an investigation. Officers from George Town police station have circulated the photographs of the items in the hope of reuniting the stolen goods with their owners. Detective Sergeant Ian McDonald is asking anyone who recognises either the Toshiba laptop or the Performance tool kit to contact him as soon as possible as he reminded owners to take a record of their valuables.

“All too often when people report their property stolen, particularly electrical items such as laptops, they are unable to provide us with details of the make, model or serial numbers,” he said. “That’s why when we do recover items which we believe to be stolen it’s difficult to reunite the owners with their property. People should take a note of these important details and also consider marking their property with UV pens.”

"If you are offered a deal that’s too good to be true, or the seller is unable to provide genuine paperwork/ receipts for the equipment, you run the risk of being prosecuted for handling stolen property.“

DS McDonald can be contacted at George Town police station 949-4222. Anyone who wishes crime prevention advice should contact their local police station.

      Well, our beloved Premier says we need more people, up to 100,000.  When we knew who lived next it was easy going, now we don't know who lives next door and hell has broken loose to our detriment and the devil is in charge.

        If you're gonna drop a comment how about making it a positive one? If not then keep your mouth shut. Guy is only trying to find his watch that was stolen out of a locked car not get questioned by the great brain trust of the Cayman Islands. I think the rise in stupitidy and the rise in crime on this island have something to do with each other.

    It would be helpful if the Serial Number of the laptop could be placed in the information this would be more than helpful.

      The computer serial number and buyer's name is kept on record by the manufacturer…. if the    buyer registered the purchase.

        Believe me it is not by all. I was the victim of a home invasion / robbery. Most goods were bought locally. Hi Tech Electronics had all the serial numbers on file.. but they were the only ones.

        Or just get an IT technician to hack the damn thing and find out who owns it, easy. Dont they have such personnel as forensic technicians in every police force? Wait aminute, probably not in Cayman…
