Police seek owners of stolen property

ACT Policing is seeking the public’s assistance to identify the owners of stolen property seized in Palmerston last week. 

About 12pm on Thursday, 30 May 2024, members from Gungahlin Police Station attended a residence in Palmerston to arrest a 31-year-old man for breach of bail.  

During the arrest, police identified a large quantity of suspected stolen property at the residence, including tools, electronic goods, and coins.  

Police believe the property was stolen recently during theft and burglary incidents over the past month.  

The man was questioned about the stolen property, however no charges have been laid in relation to these items and investigations are ongoing.  

If you believe you are the rightful owner of any of the items recovered, and can provide proof of ownership including serial numbers or other identifying features about them, please contact police on 131 444 quoting reference 7761746.

There are also simple steps people can take to make it more difficult to steal items such as tools, and to assist police in returning stolen items.  

Ensure tools and other valuable items aren’t left unattended or unsecured, cover your tools with the right insurance, record the make, model, and serial numbers of tools, and keep an inventory of your tools and equipment – these measures will assist police to return your items if they do get stolen.
