Stolen Property Returned
Marion County, FL -- Dozens of Marion County residents showed up to claim stolen property today. But only two of them actually went home with their possessions.
The Evidence Division of the Marion County Sheriffs Office displayed over 200 items that were recovered from burglaries last year. Residents had a chance to look at the items -- which ranged from tools to paintings, even a porcelain doll. If the resident could prove their ownership, they would go home with the item.
This is the first time for something like this in Marion County, but Judge Cochran, with the Marion County Sheriff's Office, said they may do it again.
"It's not our goal to hold on to this evidence after the case has been solved and the suspect has been sentenced, we want to make sure that people get their property back and as you look around at all the various items, there are cameras here, there's collectibles here, someone's missing those items," said Cochran.
The Sheriff's Office will hold on to all the items for just a little longer and then they'll go to an auction.
