ALBANY, GA (WALB) – If you are a crime victim, it's possible the police have at least some of your belongings, but don't expect to get it back without proper documentation.
Police Chief John Proctor says in many cases, police recover stolen property but can't return it because the owners don't have serial numbers or proof that it's theirs. He said, "We're actually recovering property and we are having a hard time trying to get it back to the people it belongs to."
A good way to document your belongings is to take pictures of all your items. Even if they aren't stolen, and hopefully they won't be, It's good to have an inventory of what you own for insurance purposes.
