In a news release issued Tuesday afternoon, police said items found inside the trailer included power and hand tools, a boat motor, personal items, cement tools, camera equipment, tool boxes, a ladder, canoes, cameras, backpacks, knives, and hunting gear. Detective Chris Garbarini later said the estimated value of the items was over $10,000.

The recovered property was put on display at the Citrus Heights Police Department on Friday and theft victims with crime reports were allowed to view the items, according to Garbarini.

“We had about 30 people show up and two victims were able to recover their stolen property,” the detective told The Sentinel on Friday afternoon. He said although more viewings would not be offered, others who believe their items may have been recovered still have a chance to get their items if they contact police by Friday, Nov. 4.

Those with questions are invited to contact Det. Garbarini at (916) 727-5815.

“It’s important for anybody, before they become a victim, to photograph their important items and write down serial numbers,” the detective said. He stressed that it helps both police investigations as well as victims, who are more likely to recover their property faster.
