Recently lost your bike, iPod or cell phone? Quincy police may have it

Posted:
QUINCY, Ill. (WGEM) -

Have you recently lost your bike, iPod or cell phone? Or maybe it was stolen?

There's a chance Quincy police may have it. Officers say they impound lost and stolen items, and many just go unclaimed.

Police say they keep the items for up to six months, and you should contact QPD if you think they might have something of yours.

The best way to ensure retrieving a lost or stolen item is to make sure you have a detailed description and when you purchased it.

"it is really important as an owner of any item of a bike, tools, anything to be aware of what the item is, a good description, take a picture of them item along with a picture of the serial number," said Evidence Custodian Jan Achelpohl.

Officials say they still have many unclaimed stolen items from a string of Amtrak car burglaries this fall.

If you were a victim, contact Quincy police immediately.
