Philadelphia Police hope to return stolen items to rightful owners

    Have something stolen? When police recovered about 1,000 stolen jewelry and electronic items in a recent West Philadelphia warehouse raid, the effort began to reunite the goods with the owners.

    So the Southwest Detectives Division is displaying some of the items for folks to come view. Phones, wedding bands and families are just of the things you might find. A police report or other proof of ownership is needed to claim the property.

    One couple found their television, and another reclaimed photos of her recently deceased mother.

    More items will be listed online.
