Lost or Stolen Property (FIX005)

Use this form to document property that has been lost or stolen.

When property cannot be located, the department head or equipment manager should immediately conduct a search of property disposed or transferred to see if the property has been turned into Marketing and Redistribution (M&R) or transferred to another department.

Check the last known location and all adjacent areas. If the property was lost, the department head or equipment manager should complete the Lost or Stolen Property Form detailing the steps taken to locate the property and send the form to Property Accounting.

If a theft has occurred, Public Safety should be notified immediately. A copy of the police report must accompany the Lost or Stolen Property Form and sent to Property Accounting. This is required by Act 876 of 1973, (Ark. Code 19-4-1501). It is necessary to take these steps before removing the missing property from the inventory records.
