Welcome to the Republic Police Department Lost/Stolen & Recovered Property section.  Here you can report a lost or potentially stolen item, or make a claim regarding items recovered by our department.

If you believe you have been the victim of theft, please call 911 and an officer will respond to take a police report. You may also come to the police station and file a report in person. Notifying the property room of your missing possessions is not a substitute for a police report of theft. 

The public list of unclaimed property recovered by the Republic Police Department is below. Take note of the item number to use when making a claim.  

To make a claim for a recovered item listed below, please click HERE

Property room hours are Monday through Friday 8:30am to 4:00pm excluding federal holidays. For best service, it is recommended to make an appointment with the Property Clerk prior to coming to the police station. For appointments or general questions about property and evidence, please contact Property Clerk Jake Wilburn at 417-732-3940 or by email at JWilburn@republicmo.com.

Please understand some items are not eligible for release until a related case has been adjudicated. A background check must be completed to claim a firearm. The property room does not impound or house vehicles. Most property not considered evidence in an active case is disposed of after 60 days if unclaimed.
