LOUISVILLE, KY. (WDRB) -- Louisville Metro Police have found tens of thousands of dollars in stolen electronics.

Now, as WDRB has learned, police need to figure out how to track down both the suspects and the victims.

Right now, the evidence room at LMPD's 4th Division looks more like a pawnshop.

"Cell phones, iPods, cameras, Xbox," said Detective Kevin Peak, with LMPD's 4th Division.

There are also more than a dozen watches, cameras and thousands of baseball cards.

Det. Peak says, "They buy cheap, and then try to sell it, and make a little money on it."

And Peak and other 4th Division detectives believe it's bigger than just a few people.

"I think it's a bunch of criminals using one person."

So far, police have been able to contact a handful of the victims by simply turning on the electronics.

"We've had 15 people that we've been able to match up property," said Peak. "We've been able to log on to a couple of the phones and we could send Facebook messages to the person whose phone it was."

But there's so much that still needs to be claimed, and police are hoping some of the personal notes they've found will ring a bell with someone watching.

Here's how one reads: "They've even got a list here of what they were doing...U of L tickets, skating commission, basketball team, Dress for Success."

Meanwhile, police had a little success with some of the phones, but not all of them.

"Some of the other phones are pass-locked, and that's why we're hoping some of the people who had things stolen from them, maybe, come forward and be able to come in and fire up the phone, and see if they can put a pass code in it if it's their phone," Peak said.

If you suspect any of this stuff belongs to you, just contact 4th Division police, Monday through Friday.
