Money or goods valued at less than $250 - If the item has a serial number, or other identifying marks, contact our Police Records Unit, 541-682-3775 in order to run those numbers through our local/state/national computer systems. Once you have made a good faith effort to find the owner and/or determine if the item was stolen, you are free to dispose of property valued at under $100 as you see fit. Due to space and staffing issues, our department is not currently picking up these items for disposal.
This DOES NOT apply to any firearm despite condition when found, to items which may have been used in the commission of a crime, or items that were obviously stolen during a crime, such as a safe with the door pried open. Please report these kinds of items to our Dispatch Center at 541-682-4150 option 1.
Money of goods valued at $250 or more – See ORS 98.005 Rights and duties of finder of money or goods.
