OPP APPEAL TO VICTIMS OF THEFT TO IDENTIFY SEIZED PROPERTY
Items Believed Stolen – Police Seek Owners
 
(PEMBROKE, ON) – On July 6, 2018 the Community Street Crime Unit (CSCU) of the Upper Ottawa Valley Detachment of the Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) executed a search warrant at a residence in the City of Pembroke.  At the time a 31-year-old man from Pembroke was charged with several drug, weapons and property offences.
 
As a result of the search warrant, police seized a large quantity of property which is believed to have been stolen over the past two years.  At the time police made an appeal to previous victims of theft and break and enter to claim their stolen property.  The list of seized items still in police possession includes:
 
  • Various hand and power tools including routers, sanders, drills and gas trimmers
  • Saws including chainsaws, reciprocating saws, table and mitre saws
  • Electronics including TV’s, computers, tablets, iPads and cell phones
  • Jewellery including men’s and ladies rings, necklaces, and watches
  • Miscellaneous items including USB drives, old coins, binoculars, building supplies, cameras, knives, and shop vacs
 
In a continuing effort to locate the rightful owners of the significant quantity of remaining seized property, the CSCU is again appealing to the victims of property crime to identify their belongings by inviting them to attend the Pembroke OPP Detachment at 77 International Drive in the City of Pembroke on Tuesday and Wednesday August 14 and 15, 2018 between the hours of 9am and 4pm.  Appointments are not required.
 
Those attending will have a chance to identify their stolen belongings.  To assist in proving ownership of their items the victims are encouraged to provide proof of the following items associated to their property:
 
  •   Serial number and/or unique identifying markings on property
