Members of the Metro Property Crimes Section recovered an enormous amount of stolen goods after uncovering a storage unit scheme that spanned the Kansas City metro area.

Detectives say the suspect, now in custody, would gain access to facilities by renting a storage unit. The suspect would then break into other storage units, steal goods, and install a replacement lock back on the victim's unit to hide the break-in.

Because of the nature of the crime and cover-up, many victims are still unaware their possessions were stolen. Detectives held a news conference on April 14, inviting local media to capture and share images of the stolen goods in hopes their rightful owners would recognize them.

Some victims – especially those with recorded serial numbers – have already claimed their possessions.

If you believe any of this property is yours, please file a police report in the jurisdiction from which your items were stolen. Once you have a case report number, you may then email with a list of your stolen property.

The suspect will face charges in several jurisdictions.

To date, property recovered came from Kansas City, Lenexa, Olathe, Overland Park, and Prairie Village.

The Metro Property Crimes Section investigates all property-related crimes within its division. There are equivalent sections at all other KCPD divisions.
