Calera police make a big arrest in several theft cases, but they need help finding the rightful owners of the items recovered.
On Monday police responded to a call about a disturbance on Sharpsburg Circle in Calera. When they went inside the home they found lots of stolen property.
Police recovered things like iPods, cell phones, cameras, televisions, and even a few guns. Police Chief Sean Lemley knew there had been several car break-ins in Calera and Alabaster so they matched some of the stolen property to those cases, but there are still items that haven't been claimed.
Lemley says some of the victims may not even realize they're missing some of these items.
"They go along in neighborhoods and check door handles to see if cars are locked in the middle of the night," said Lemley, "If cars are locked they go on to the next car. If the car's unlocked they'll get in and steal it out of there so you may have a firearm that you keep under your seat that you may not even realize that's missing."
Lemley says they have some names in the iPods they're using to search for the owner, but if you think some of the stolen property belongs to you, call Calera Police.
