Jasper County residents retrieve stolen items


Some residents in Jasper County now have some of their stolen items back.

The Jasper County Sheriff's Office held its third and final lost and found today, allowing the public to search through stolen property discovered in a recent investigation.

Possible victims were able to claim any personal belongings by showing a police report.

As of this morning, over 50 people had found and claimed their items.

Joplin resident Jason Gaskill says it is a great service and he is happy to have his air compressor back.

"It feels great," Gaskill said.   "We're talking about something that is of value to me and they took it and it wasn't theirs. Glad to have it back and glad they're in jail."

Jasper County officials estimate nearly $40,000 worth of stolen property has been returned to the rightful owners.
