Property Marking.

Please make a note of the serial number and model of your valuable property and any identifying marks.  The simplest way of doing this is by photographing it and filing it on your PC.  If officers can’t identify it the chances of you getting it back are slim.  Officers, often detain suspects with what they believe to be stolen property but have to return the property to the ‘suspect’ if they cannot prove it is stolen and they can’t ID an owner.  Another way to get your property back is to do a little ‘online searching’ on the various social media e.g. ‘Market Places’ e.g. Gum Tree, Facebook (Meta?).  Thieves have to get rid of stolen property and popular items to steal are : cycles, laptops, mobile phones, garden and work tools e.g. mowers, strimmers, hedge cutters, power drills, planes, grinders.  If you have a photo of the serial number and identifying marks and you believe it is being offered for sale go to the Police with your evidence.  Don’t try to get it back without speaking to them, and certainly not on your own.
