Police seek to return stolen property

By Allison Klein

Was jewelry stolen from your home? Maybe your TV? A Wii, perhaps? Montgomery County police might have it.

At 11 a.m. Tuesday, officers will be displaying hundreds of unclaimed valuables stolen from home break-ins in Gaithersburg, Montgomery Village, and Germantown. Items include jewelry, phones, flat-screen TVs and cameras. The display will be only open to the media.

Last month, police arrested four suspects responsible for burglaries and thefts, and during the course of the investigation, detectives recovered a large cache of stolen property. Police located several victims, and their property was returned to them.
But police say there are still a large number of valuables that have not been claimed.

I don't get it..... How does opening this up just to the media help the victims recover their stolen property?? And if it's not for the victims to get their stuff back then what's the point?

Have to say I wouldn't recognize my 46" Samsung LED flat screen from anyone else's 46" Samsung LED flat screen.
