Police recovered several alleged stolen CDs, CD carrying cases and checks during the execution of two search warrants Wednesday, Washington County Sheriff's Department Investigator Greg Alton said.

Alton is asking anyone who might have had such property stolen over the past year to contact him.

Alton said the search warrants were executed as part of an investigation into alleged thefts from motor vehicles reported since January 2005 in the county.

The search warrants were executed by county police Wednesday at an apartment in the 200 block of Summer Street in Hagerstown and by West Virginia State Police, based on county police information, at an apartment in the 100 block of Eclipse Court in Martinsburg, W.Va.

Among the alleged stolen property recovered, Alton said police found "a wooden box," similar to a jewelry box, that had a notebook from Osborne Funeral Home in Williamsport inside.


"It had writing in the book. It looked like someone was keeping track of money," he said.

He said there was something written "to Jeff" and something written "car for Gene 7/26/03."

Alton is looking for the owner of that notebook and box.

During the search warrant executed in West Virginia, police recovered two freezer bags filled with marijuana and allegedly stolen electronics, clothing and a loaded .22-caliber handgun.

Alton asks anyone who believes the alleged stolen property belongs to them, to call him at 240-313-2185 or 301-573-0893.
