Can you run the serial number of an item or a firearm and tell me if it is stolen?
That depends. We can’t tell you over the phone if the item is listed as stolen or not, but if you think you know where a stolen article or firearm may be we will investigate it if you tell us where it is. If you bought an item like a TV or a firearm that you think might be stolen you can bring it to the police department and we will investigate it for you. For your safety and ours NEVER BRING A FIREARM INTO THE POLICE DEPARTMENT FOR ANY REASON.
