Lost, Stolen and Found Property Check

If you find a gun or other weapon, call 911. It is important that you do not touch or move it. Officers will need to investigate whether it was used in a crime.

For other found items, please take the item to the nearest Minneapolis Police Precinct and turn it in to the desk officer. That officer will generate a case number and make a report of a found items. Please make a note/record of the case number. Fou items will make their way to the Property and Evidence Unit where they will be documented and stored. The description given will be entered into our computer system for a search of lost items. If there is a match, we will return the item to the rightful owner. If there is not a match we will check again in 2 weeks, one month, and three months. After 6 months, the item processed for our public auctions.
