Albany -- Albany Police say they could return most of the stolen property they recover, if people would permanently mark their valuables.

Police recommend that you use an engraver like this to mark your valuables. Investigators say if you permanently mark your Electronics and valuables, you or Police will be able to identify them easily.

Police say that most pawn shops and fences will not buy them from thieves if they are marked. Lt. Kenn Singleton said "What you can do is put your drivers license number or any type of marking that is going to let us know that this item does belong to you. "

If you need help, Albany Police will come to your home and teach you to engrave your valuables, and give you tips on making your home safer from break-ins.
