Weapons, bongs and pot pourri - the lost property handed in to police
WEAPONS, a police warrant, bongs and pot pourri were among the items of lost property handed in to police in the Wycombe district.
Honest citizens handed in items ranging from a diamond and ruby eternity ring and £1,800 cash to three DVDs, dress beads and chocolates.
Unusual discoveries included DJ equipment, a metal safe complete with paperwork, glass bongs and even a Metropolitan Police warrant card.
But worryingly, weapons – including swords, a hammergun, knives, pepper spray, an axe and ammunition – were found in public places.
The lost property departments at Wycombe, Marlow and Princes Risborough police stations were flooded with 73 phones, 12 key sets, 8 suitcases, 28 bags, seven bank cards and 11 passports or driving licences.
There were also 35 purses, 89 wallets and loose cash totalling £4823.67, and hundreds more in foreign currency found around the district.
Other items include toys, clothes, a football, a crutch, bikes, watches, a golf club and a recorder.
The figures were released by Thames Valley Police following a Freedom of Information request submitted by the Bucks Free Press.
All of the above items were handed in between January 1 and July 31.
