Individuals requesting the release of ANY property confiscated by the St. Charles County Police Department or who wants to claim found property must submit a Property & Evidence Release form. Please allow up to five (5) business days to receive a response and your appointment time. If you do not receive a confirmation, check your spam, junk, and bulk mail folders. Property and evidenceretrieval is by appointment only.
Before any property can be released, approval must be obtained by the investigating officer and/or the Office of the Prosecuting Attorney. For your appointment, please bring photo identification and, if retrieving a firearm, proof of ownership. A records check will be performed on your criminal history to determine if you are lawfully able to possess a firearm.
Weapons cannot be returned if any of the following apply:
You are a convicted felon
You have outstanding arrest warrants
You have a dishonorable discharge
You have a misdemeanor domestic violence conviction
You are the subject of an Order of Protection
Property release may be denied for several reasons. For example, any property undergoing analysis and/or court proceedings may be retained by the police department.
