Public viewing of jewellery in police custody
Police have several articles of jewellery, dating as far back as the 1980s, and they want the owners to come and collect them.
Twice via print media in November 2018, the Royal Barbados Police Force alerted Barbadians about the jewellery, and yesterday at Central Police Station they held a public viewing.
“These exhibits were a part of cases that were adjudicated and we wish to have them go back to their respective owners. We are now hoping through this exhibition [that] members of the public who may have lost jewellery can come and claim it,” Acting Superintendent Lavon Sobers said.
If the items were not collected, Sobers said they would be auctioned.
“We do not want to auction anything, but if we are still saddled with some of it, we will hold a public auction when we’ve determined that we’ve exhausted all of our means,” he added.
There will be public viewings today and tomorrow at Central Police Station from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. (TG)
