The Colorado Springs Police Department says they've been able to find the owners of almost all of the stolen pieces of jewelry involved in a large jewelry theft case.

In the last six months, police have taken several reports of stolen jewelry. The investigations revealed that a suspect in these burglaries later pawned many items at local pawn shops. "A lot of the property is property that's not easily identified," said Sgt. Steve Noblitt. "A lot of it is jewelry and there's not a serial number so it's not easy for people to claim.

In just one day since police made pictures of the stolen jewelry public, and KKTV and other news outlets published this information, CSPD investigators have cleared three cases and returned 38 out of 50 items to their owner.

If you look at the photos and believe the item is yours and you have been the victim of a reported burglary in the last six months, you're asked to call Detective Kessler at (719) 444-3177.

"Please keep in mind that detectives working this case may take a little while to return your call due to case volume. Also, it is important for you to take every step possible to make it easier for you to establish the property belongs to you. If you have photos of you wearing the jewelry or if you have other photos of the jewelry this may help investigators identify the property," notes the Colorado Springs Police Department.

If you have information about this or any other crime, you can call Crime Stoppers at 634-STOP.
