| 10/09/2009

(CNS): George Town detectives said this week that they are seeking the owners of a range of stolen goods that have been recovered in police operations. The RCIPS has released pictures of the various items in an effort to locate their rightful owners. Detective Sergeant Winsome Prendergast said the items have been recovered from across the Island “These items have been recovered during searches carried out as part of burglary enquiries,” she said.

“The people whose possession they have been found in cannot legitimately account for them and there have been some arrests in connection with these goods. We need people to come forward if they think they are the rightful owners.” DS Prendergast said that anyone who believes the items to be theirs should come forward. “We will need people to show that they own the goods,” she said. “This could be through producing serial numbers, receipts, photographs, or by knowing identifying marks on the items. Once the true ownership has been confirmed, the items will be returned to their rightful owner.”

The RCIPS stresses that it is important for to people report break-ins to the police and also that residents take precautions to help identify items if they are recovered. All serial numbers should be recorded and photographs should be taken of valuable items. Residents are also reminded to keep their homes secure and protect themselves as best they can against break-ins. Always lock windows and doors, use a stopper on sliding doors and windows and never leave valuables on display. More crime prevention information can be found on  The haul of goods includes:
