LONGMONT, Colo. – The Longmont Police Department is trying to make things right by returning hundreds of stolen items from one pair of criminals.

Police arrested two men in October and found the two had more than 400 stolen items in their possession. The majority of the stolen items, taken between Aug. 1 and Oct. 22, are landscaping equipment.

Longmont Police say so far, they’ve returned items to five different people but still have hundreds more items to deliver.

If you think Longmont Police has your stolen property, you can do the following to get it back:

Step 1. Locate the number you were given when your police report was filed. If you did not file a police report, please do not go to step 2 until that report is filed. Unless we have a police report, we cannot return property to you. Internet link to file a report – https://longmontcolorado.gov/…/public-…/report-online-police

Step 2. If you believe that your items (stolen between Aug 1, 2017 and October 22, 2017) may have been recovered please EMAIL Detective Desmond at stephen.desmond@longmontcolorado.gov with the following information:
a. Longmont Police report number
b. Your name and a phone number that you can be reached at.
c. Description of the items that you believe we may have. Please provide any information that can help us connect these items to you (including a serial number, make/model, dents, markings, your name etched on it, color, size, etc.). The better details you can provide, the quicker we can get these returned.

Step 3. Once we have received your email, we will take your information and try to connect the items to property that has been recovered. Staff will contact you as soon as they connect your property to the items we have in our custody. Please be patient as there are 400 items on this list and it is unclear how many victims are involved.
