TUCSON (KGUN9-TV) - Tucson Police has a large amount of distinctive jewelry and rare coins of high value that are believed to be stolen property and are offering the public a chance to view these items so they may be returned to owners, according to Sgt. Maria Hawke with TPD.

Officials tell KGUN9 that detectives believe the jewelry and coins were taken during an unknown number of burglary or theft incidents in Tucson prior to Feb. 20, 2012.

Each item is distinct and is high in value.

The detectives will be coordinating viewings of these items later in June to try and identify the rightful owners.

To make an appointment to view the items, a person would have had to previously report a theft or burglary involving any distinct items of jewelry or rare coins occurring in Tucson prior to Feb. 20, 2012.

If you have reported such crimes, police are asking to call 520-351-8811 and leave a voicemail message with your name, contact information and police report number for the theft or burglary that was previously reported, as well as the agency you reported the theft with.

A detective will then contact you with further information.
