We have no doubt they'll want it back, since a lot of it is amazingly weird. As shown by the photos below, this may be one of the most bizarre hauls in recent Colorado criminal history.
According to the CSPD, detectives began investigating a burglary at a storage unit in the 4200 block of North Nevada Avenue last month. Along the way, they executed a search warrant at another storage unit, this one located on the 2000 block of King Street in Colorado Springs. There they found property stolen from the North Nevada site, as well as other objects reportedly swiped from different parts of the King Street facility. The execution of a second search warrant, this time for a residence on Garland Avenue, led to the discovery of more property considered stolen, including a firearm.
Some of the belongings not yet traced to specific victims clearly have resale value; there are a lot of tools, some big-screen televisions and an assortment of video games. But much of the rest looks like the kind of thing you'd only purchase at a thrift store if you'd been invited to a White Elephant party and it was half-price day.
The CSPD is encouraging owners of storage units in the Springs to visit their spaces to make sure they haven't been ransacked; if they have been, they can phone 719-444-7000 to make a report, then visit the web page to see if they recognize their possessions and, if they do, email Sergeant Owen Scott at [email protected] with the case number and contact information.
