WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) - The Wilmington Police Department wants you to know about a free online system to help keep track of your personal property.
The website reportit.leadsonline.com allows you to record serial numbers and upload pictures of phones, electronics, jewelry, collectibles and other valuables. If these items are ever stolen, having that information could help recover them.
When an item is sold to a pawn shop, the product information is entered into a database that can be viewed by law enforcement across the country.
Having a record of this information also helps when filling out insurance claims in the event of a theft or loss.
The Leadsonline service is free.
