Records :: Found Property
To claim found property, please bring photo ID to our office. Bring your notification letter, if you received one. Property will be released Monday through Friday between the hours of 9:30 a.m. and 3:30 p.m.
If you would like someone else to pick up your property, we must receive an original notarized letter of authorization from you. If you are picking up property for a person who is currently incarcerated, that person must write a letter authorizing you to pick up his/her property, and it must be witnessed by a Corrections Officer at the jail, with the officer's name, badge number, and contact phone number.
If you have found property, please call the police as soon as possible. Found items may not always be lost items, but may actually have been stolen or involved in the commission of a crime which police may currently be investigating. Found property can be turned over to any of our Police Officers or brought to the Newport Police Department.
Due to lack of storage space, we are unable to accept found bicycles or other large items. Please see below for information on the Oregon Finders Law, and how to establish claim to found property.
