Detectives from the Sammamish Police Department and the King County Sheriff's Office are trying to find the owners of stolen property that was recovered last July after the arrest of a couple who admitted to committing dozens of burglaries between Tigard, Ore. and Mill Creek, Wash.
 
Krystal Sweetman of Puyallup and Steven Tipton of Tacoma, both 27, were arrested last July after an investigation that revealed the couple had committed more than 80 residential burglaries between January 2012 and July 2013.

The couple sold many of the stolen items at area coin shops, netting more than $346,000 in the 18-month crime spree.
 
Detectives also found a storage unit packed with property taken from the burglaries. Many of the stolen items from the storage unit have not been claimed and detectives are hoping to reunite victims with their property.
 
Police say in January, Sweetman pled guilty to multiple charges and was sentenced to 36 months in prison and 36 months in community custody.  Tipton is expected to plead later this month.
 
Detectives are asking anyone who was the victim of a burglary between January, 2012 and July, 2013 to look at the photos at this link (Password: SammamishPD) to see if any of the property belongs to you.
 
If you see property that you believe belongs to you, follow the instructions on the link.  You will be asked to provide the case number of your burglary and will need to provide proof the item is yours. 

If you have questions call 804-885-KCSO (5276)
