Police in Cherry Hill, New Jersey may have something for you. They've catalogued more than 10,000 stolen items that they are now looking to return.

It took three detectives two weeks to photograph and catalog the items, which include cameras, electronics, jewelry, tools, and even a set of "The Munsters" DVDs.

"Yeah, all sorts. Name it. It's like a general store of merchandise," said Sgt. Joe Vitarelli of the Cherry Hill Police.

Sgt. Vitarelli says the stolen items have been linked to pair of thieves arrested in February believed to have committed hundreds of burglaries in a sprawling area since 2006.

"We estimated all of South Jersey, Trenton south, and southeastern Pennsylvania. That was their area of operation," Sgt. Vitarelli said.

Police say what the duo didn't sell at flea markets was stored in a locker in Atlantic County.

"Required a big truck, a box truck, to take everything back to Cherry Hill Police for processing and cataloging. This is how these people made their living, by stealing," Sgt. Vitarelli said.

If you want to claim something that you think is yours, you have to provide a police report and a statement describing exactly what was stolen.

Police are already getting phone calls and making appointments so folks can get a first hand look at the thousands of items of stolen merchandise.
