APD seeks owners of stolen property

ALBUQURQUE (KRQE) – Four years worth of stolen property is going on display as we speak.

Albuquerque police are trying to find out who the property belongs to, they say the victims come from all over the metro.

APD is calling it one of the biggest busts in recent memory. And now the public is invited to come down here to the substation near Lomas and Tramway to see if any of it is theirs.

Earlier this month, police served a search warrant on a home in the northeast heights. They recovered video games, computers, sports memorabilia, speakers, tools and a whole lot more.

Police say the items were taken from homes, cars and business likely in Bernalillo, Sandoval and Valencia Counties. They think some of it may have been stolen as far back as 2010.

People who think some of their stuff are down there, they will need a photo ID and a police report or case number.

Police have already found the owners of a few items, but the goal is to get everything returned to their rightful owners.

“That’s the whole reason for doing this. It’s not much of evidentiary value at this point. The whole purpose of us recovering it was to get it back to the victims. We want to reunite them with their property.” Stephanie Smith said.

The property viewing will run until 8 o’clock Tuesday night.

If you can’t make it Tuesday, police are holding another open house on Saturday from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m.
