Property Releases
The Asheboro Police Evidence and Property Unit requires that persons retrieving property have proper identification and sign a notice of reception of the property. Property associated with a criminal case that is currently in litigation will not be released until the case is complete and a court disposition signed by a judge is received. There are also other laws and procedures that govern the release of found property and stolen property. An appointment must be made to pick up property between the hours of 9:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m. Monday through Thursday. Please call (336) 626-1300 x 300 or 313 to get further information on the process for obtaining property or to make an appointment.
Weapon Releases
The United States Gun Control Act of 1968 requires that anyone receiving a weapon be subject to a criminal history research. This procedure is conducted prior to the property release and may take additional time to complete. There are other requirements not listed as gun releases are a lengthy process. Defense attorneys can assist the owner in claiming weapons.

How do I claim my property?

My property was taken as evidence, when can I retrieve it?

Can someone else pick up my property for me?

How do I obtain a disposition to restore property?

I lost my wallet (or other item) can I call and have someone check if it has been turned in to the Police Department?
