Claiming Property and Auction of Unclaimed Property
Claiming Your Property
To claim property in the possession of the Baltimore County Police Department, first speak to the investigating officer assigned to your case. (Contact information for our precincts and Criminal Investigation Division is available online.)
The investigating officer is responsible for having your property released. If he or she agrees that the property is not needed as evidence, he or she will notify the Evidence Management Unit. The Evidence Management Unit will send you a letter with directions about how to pick up your property.
You have 30 days after notification by Evidence Management to retrieve your property at the Evidence Management Unit, 700 E. Joppa Road, Towson, 21286. You must present a government photo ID and the letter mailed to you by Evidence Management.
After 30 days, the property will be considered unclaimed and sold at public auction or destroyed.
Auction of Unclaimed Property
The Baltimore County Police Department uses Propertyroom.com to auction off all abandoned, stolen, lawfully seized property of every kind and description that has been unclaimed for 30 days or more.
This is an ongoing auction available 24 hour a day, 7 days a week. Auctioned items include electronics, jewelry, clothing, bicycles, tools and sporting equipment.
