PIERRE — The Pierre Police Department is reaching out to the public for help in returning personal items recovered as part of a massive investigation. Detective Sergeant Dusty Pelle says the investigation spanned multiple months and recovered a large amount of stolen goods. Most of the items are believed to have been stolen from storage units in the Pierre area and Pelle says some of the thefts may not have been reported. Some of the recovered items include automotive parts and accessories, household items, and other miscellaneous items. Victims will be permitted to view stolen property by appointment until Monday, May 8th. That’s when state law says the police department can dispose of the items. To verify ownership of any of the items you must have a prior police report documenting a loss or specific identifying information like serial numbers, personal identifiers, photos or receipts from purchases. To set up a viewing appointment contact Pelle at the Pierre Police Department at 605-773-7413.
