    Good luck with that. I have been in the same boat in '07, to this day I have not been able to retrieve my property from the PD evidence room. I fear at this point in time it is destroyed or mistreated. I have been given the run around by everyone involved.

    Question ..... If you recieve compensation from an insurance policy for guns that were stolen from you but were only given partial value because of deductables or loss limits in your policy, Who would own the weapons if they where recovered? Who would the police department contact? (The original owner or the insurance company that paid for a portion of the asset).
    A friend had approx 100 weapons stolen. All the serial # submitted ---the guy was caught. Insurance paid off---- none of the guns have been recovered yet.
    Thanks for your insight...Alan

    I contact both. If the complainant wants the gun back then the insurance folks and the complainant can work things out.

    The insurance has salvage rights when they pay the claim.

    I have more issues when there are problems with insurance companies. Some are easy to work with and others are real pain.

    I hope you find this helpful.

    my father passed away about a year ago today. He had some gun in his possession which I believe prior to his death were sold without his permission ,, He had numerous strokes and was unable to communicate. It believed that a family member of my step-mom's sold them. i know his guns were registered . There is really only one gun in particular i am interested in . It was issued to my grandpa, his father. It was issued to my issued grandpa by the city of Goldsmith when he served as chief of police there. It was given to my dad was when grandpa passed away. It really has more sentimental value than monetary . When my aunt asked about this gun the family member about it he contacted the person sold all the gun to and said it was not among them so this person does know who sold them to. All i know at present is it was a pistol. However if these gun were registered in my dad's name. How would I go about find that information? You may contact by sending me a PM

    As I understand this thread then my original 640 Centennial is no longer stolen, as the burglary was back in the early nineties. I took notice that the "is it still stolen?" letters stopped coming. Great way to clear a case load. Magical mystery guns, poof, now owned legally by a thief or his gang buddies.

    That's a great business model too. Steal guns, grease em up and hide them in a box. Come back 5 years later and clean them up, off to the gun show you go, with guns the police have cleared for you. I'm old but if I were a young man I might be inclined. You could put on your cards that your guns are backed by police policy. "All my weapons have been cleared by a Police Debt." It almost worked for that range in Humble. Except they took evidence guns that someone else planned to take.
    God bless America. It's clear no one else will.

    Cyndi, if your father/grandfather lived in Texas, the guns were not registered. There is no gun registration in Texas. I hope you find what you're looking for.

    I don't think that department has existed for many, many years.
