StealItBack - Police Auctions Online

January 19, 2005 at 09:27 AM

It's like eBay, but with stolen crap. Once stolen property is not needed as evidence and if the rightful owners can't be found, former police officers Property Bureau purchase it and auction it off. One pretty cool feature:

Private citizens are invited to register on StealitBack.com any items with serial numbers they have lost or reported stolen to their local police department. StealitBack.com will search its database, and if an item has been received from a participating department, will return the item to the police department where the theft or loss was originally reported so that it may be returned to its rightful owner free of charge.

You can even find something for that special someone in your life.

Hey you'll take what you can get woman. I'm saving up my money for more electronics, any stuff for you will have to come from money found in the sofa cushions.

I'm no lawyer but I enjoy a good DISCLAIMER like this one - "On behalf of a law enforcement agency or other partner....." Other partner? How does one become a partner? Smells fishy to me. Keep your money in your pocket, son - there is no free meal.
