Treasure trove of stolen goods discovered in Maryland
For people who have been victims of theft, the fantasy is a common one: The stolen wedding ring somehow magically reappears on the doorstep, the laptop computer that holds the finished novel is brought home by a friendly neighborhood policeman.
The wedding ring and finished novel were close to ending up on Craigslist for the victims of 18 break-ins in Gaithersburg and Germantown.
But after police reclaimed a treasure trove of stolen goods in December, the fantasy may just come true, Crime Scene reported today.
If only the owners would reclaim them.
Laptop computers, cash, seven flat screen televisions, and more than 200 pieces of jewelry that were snatched from homes in the Gaithersburg and Germantown areas and recovered have not been claimed, authorities say.
"Give us a call and make an appointment to come up here," Detective Bob Finkelstein, standing behind a table spread with loot, said in a message Tuesday to the victims.
He can be reached at: 240-773-6246.
