Sheriff's Office Offers New Tool for Victims of Lost Property9/15/2011 12:14:02 PM
The Lewis County Sheriff’s Office has developed a new tool that will, hopefully, aid in helping citizens claim their lost property.
Citizens who have lost property in Lewis County can now go to the LCSO website to see if their property has been turned in. The website address is: http://lewiscountywa.gov/sheriff/found-property.
Property Director Isabelle Williams said, “It is our goal to get property back to its rightful owner. We get a great deal of satisfaction and sense of accomplishment returning property to its owner – especially those treasured items that are irreplaceable and that they thought were lost forever."
Several methods are used by property and evidence staff to return lost property to its owner. Having the capability to put the information on the website will be very helpful to victims and citizens in finding their lost property as the posting can remain on the site until the owner claims it.
Last month 57 items were turned into the Lewis County Sheriff’s Office as lost property.
In 2010, 433 items were turned in.
