Sheriff’s Office releases stolen photos

Some of the images recovered by the Calhoun County Sheriff's Office while it investigated a string of burglaries. Authorities are releasing the pictures in the hopes of finding their owners. (July 16, 2014)

BATTLE CREEK, Mich. (WOOD) — The Calhoun County Sheriff’s Office says it has found items stolen in a string of burglaries — but it’s having trouble figuring out where some of the loot came from.

When the sheriff’s office conducted a search while investigating the burglaries, it recovered “a large amount of stolen property.” It was able to link some of the items to three burglaries, but hasn’t identified the owners of everything it found.

Among the stolen items were memory cards with photos on them, slides from 1965 and a slide viewer. Authorities released some of the pictures to the media, hoping their rightful owners would see and claim them.

The three burglaries the sheriff’s office has identified took place in Pennfield and Bedford townships, but investigators say the suspects could easily have traveled outside of that area. They say the photos’ owners could be from anywhere in West Michigan.

Anyone who would like to claim the photos or who has information is asked to call the Calhoun County Sheriff’s Office Pennfield Team at 269.963.3786.
