The Property Crime Unit reminds the public to register and record serial numbers of vehicles and trailers, including Powersports and leisure products. Serial numbers of household products such as electronics, power tools, bicycles, and jewelry should also be documented. The documentation facilitates investigations in identifying victims and substantiating property theft charges. In addition, documentation of property increases the chances of the return of property to its rightful owners.
