CHICKASHA, Okla. — If you’ve recently been the victim of burglary or theft, Chickasha police say they’d like to hear from you. That is because they may have some of your valuables.
Police made traffic stop that lead police to a treasure trove.
Officers say they stopped the 23-year-old on a fairly minor offense, but it was what he had inside his truck that caught their attention.
“We’re talking about items that are rings, watches. There are even some baseball cards that are involved; items that would be really distinctive,” says Traye Alexander with the Chickasha Police Department.
Officers say, not only were there between 50 and 60 different pieces, they were stored in a unique way and riding along in the vehicle with Levi Garretson.
“We’re talking in bags and boxes. One of the boxes or containers has the name ‘Colton’ written on the side,” Alexander says.
Garretson was arrested because he didn’t have a valid driver’s license, but the large array of jewelry will be kept until they can determine if it’s really stolen.
Alexander says, “His vehicle was impounded due to the arrest. When the officers were inventorying his vehicle they discovered a large amount of miscellaneous jewelry. Given the individual’s history they determined the jewelry may be stolen property.”
Police say if you’ve been the victim of theft, they might have your valuables.
“If you can produce a photograph or sales receipt or a detailed physical description of the item, it would help us out a ton,” Alexander explains.
Authorities also found night vision goggles and a pinhole camera in the truck.
Anyone who may be missing any jewelry and other items or may have information on the items is asked to call the Chickasha Police Department at (405) 222-6050 or Crimestoppers at (405) 222-TIPS (8477)
