Eagle police recover stolen iPods

Daily staff report
Eagle, CO Colorado
Special to the Vail Daily/Eagle PoliceSome of the iPods and other electronic devices recovered by Eagle police have not yet been reported stolen by their owners.

EAGLE, Colorado – Stolen iPods, cameras and other electronic devices have been recovered by Eagle police, who are holding them as evidence for possible prosecutions and to return to their owners.

Investigations continue into the numerous vehicle break-ins throughout areas of Eagle and Gypsum over the summer and as far back as July, 2008, Eagle police Sgt. Terry Simpkins said Thursday.

Many of the items recovered were iPods, cameras, iPod accessories, Microsoft Zunes, cases for those items and earphones. Some of the items haven’t been reported stolen and Eagle police are trying to locate the owners.

If you had an iPod stolen from your vehicle, access “iTunes” on the computer used for your device. In iTunes, your device information may still be accessible, including the serial number for that device. An article on how to do this is located at: http://support.apple.com/kb/HT1459

Using that and any other information about your iPod – color, type of music, obscure artists, the name of your device (i.e., “Brian’s” iPod), pictures, contacts – contact Simpkins with the Eagle Police Department at tsimpkins@townofeagle.org, 970-328-9636.

Your device or stolen item may have already been recovered. As with any other case, items will not be released without positive identification and an existing report made to your local law enforcement agency.

As a reminder, vehicle break-ins can continue to occur within Eagle County and a majority of these crimes happen when vehicles are left unlocked. Take the extra time to secure your vehicle and never leave items of value behind or visible through the windows, Simpkins says.
