PCSO may have your property

Found--Unclaimed-Property

Did you know that the Pinal County Sheriff's Office has found and unclaimed property that may be yours? 

Their Evidence Unit has been looking for the owners of all kinds of items from jewelry to firearms.   Property may have been stolen and found, or possibly used in a court case. 

Arizona laws regarding Found and Unclaimed Property

Any Found and Unclaimed Property will be held for 30 days. Found property turned over to Pinal County Sheriff's Office may be returned to the person who found it if all of the conditions of A.R.S.12-941 apply. If the found or unclaimed property is not claimed within 30 days by the finder/owner, the property will be disposed of according to Arizona Revised Statutes.

When a criminal case is adjudicated, the Property and Evidence Unit will attempt to locate the owner of any property eligible for release that was held as evidence for the trial. If not successful, the property will be disposed of according to Arizona Revised Statutes.

Proof of Ownership Required. For Found Property, Bicycles and Stolen Recovered Property, there are five ways proof of ownership can be established. 

  1. Claimant can verify serial number of the item
  2. have a dated receipt of purchase of the item
  3. have submitted a prior Stolen/Lost Property Report with a police agency for the item
  4. have a prior photograph with themselves and the item in it, 
  5. or be able to articulate specific characteristics of the item that are not visible in the photographs posted. 

For Found Firearms the claimant can

  1. verify the serial number of the item
  2. have a dated receipt of purchase of the item
  3. or have submitted a prior Stolen/Lost Property Report with a police agency for the item. 


Unclaimed property can only be claimed by the person listed as the Possible Owner.


Owners of "Found", "Lost", or "Safekeeping" property should, if relevant, call the PCSO Property and Evidence Unit at (520)-866-5189 to schedule an appointment to pick up their property. All property is released on Tuesday and Thursday by appointment only.
