Now is the time for anyone associated with the University of Oklahoma to claim lost property. It going once, going twice…
Unclaimed property in custody of the University of Oklahoma police may soon be on its way to charity, eBay or destruction.
This is your last chance to call police and claim your personal property.
It has been about two years since the department has disposed of unclaimed property. Bicycles, computer parts, tools and other items are taking up lots of space in the evidence room. The policy on unclaimed items is that they are held for 180 days and if not claimed they can then be disposed.
The owners of this unclaimed property have another chance to claim items if they appear at an 8:15 a.m. public hearing March 27 in District Judge Tom Lucas’ courtroom at the Cleveland County District Court, 200 S Peters Ave.
When there is a known owner a certified letter is sent to the last known address. Owners are also notified of the hearing date.
There are 14 bicycles which are going to be donated to the Cleveland County Christmas Store. Some items, such as credit cards, checks or other documents, will be shredded.
The Oklahoma University property control room also may list items on eBay for sale. The police have found a Sony camcorder, car stereos and a computer printer, which will be auctioned on eBay.
To claim items you will need proof of ownership, such as a serial number or a receipt.
