West Seattle Crime Watch: Police found a camera. Is it yours?

One good reason to report any and all thefts – police might recover your stuff and not be able to get it back to you if there’s no identifying marks and no report on record. That’s what happened in this incident we just got word of today: A detective in the SPD Found Property/Evidence Unit e-mailed to say police recovered a Nikon DX digital camera in West Seattle and are looking for its owner: “The camera contains family photos from the 2017 Holidays and the family trip to California. The owner can contact the Evidence Unit at 206-684-8720, ext. 8. Must have proof of ownership.”

    I love that the detective reached out and is trying to find the camera’s owner!

    If it’s a newer model it might embed gps location data where the pictures were taken. It writes the data into the exif file. Lots of free software to read exif data. Hope the camera finds its way back to the owner.

    It’s possible the owner just upgraded to FX (full frame)?

Sorry, comment time is over.
