Think your child’s bike was stolen when they left it at the playground or in the neighborhood? That’s possible, but it could also have been found by a neighbor, a Douglas County Sheriff’s deputy or a Community Safety Volunteer (CSV.)
When deputies and CSV’s spot abandoned bicycles, they take them to the DCSO’s Evidence and Property Room. The bikes are stored there for about a month and then turned over to the Douglas/Elbert Task Force, a non-profit organization that sells them and uses the funds to help the homeless.
So, before you file a theft report or give up on every seeing your child’s bike again—please first check with our Evidence and Property Room! Call us at 303.660.7558 and describe the missing bicycle.
