In a stolen property investigation, it is as important to be able to identify and locate the property, as is determining who stole the property. A stolen property investigation by ICS can help find this information and more by utilizing a variety of resources. Here are a few examples of clients who may need a stolen property investigation:
You have been the victim of theft
- You suspect that you have received stolen goods, often in the form of a gift
- You own or operate a pawn shop and have received suspicious property
- Insurance claims investigators verifying a theft claim
- Corporate loss prevention employees
If you have been the victim of theft, or believe you have received stolen property, the police might not have the time or resources to thoroughly investigate your case. This is especially true if you live in an urban area where police are often overwhelmed by the number of cases they receive everyday. Since the police will generally not be able to close your stolen property investigation to your satisfaction, you should consider hiring a private investigator with ICS to begin an investigation on your behalf. An ICS private investigator will take your case seriously and will not
judge the importance of your case based solely on the value of the item
stolen, as many law enforcement agencies may do in order to prioritize cases. In addition to monetary value, stolen items may hold significant sentimental or historical value as well, and the ICS team will put our resources to work for you to provide the peace of mind you deserve.
During the investigative process, ICS will obtain as much information as possible. Our investigators will be asking questions focused around the item itself, the premises, the people who have access to item, and security measures, if any, taken to protect the item. Your private investigator may wish to see the original police report, question anyone involved, and search for any witnesses, including any who may not have come forward during the initial police investigation.
Being the victim of theft is never easy, and receiving stolen goods unknowingly can cause you undeserved legal troubles, so do not hesitate to call ICS today or fill out a free consultation on our website. ICS has investigators who are experienced in investigating and dealing with stolen property, distraction theft, identity theft, cyber-theft, cargo theft, larceny, burglary, thefts, counterfeit property thefts, smash and grabs, organized retail crime and firearms investigations.

Do not wait until it is too late; the sooner you begin your investigation, the better.
