Sheriff’s Office Returns Property After 29 Years

February 08, 2006  | 

After being evicted in 1977, Mr. John Bayles then of Mission, Kansas and now of Toronto, Kansas had left behind property he didn’t know he had left. Once the moving company and emptied the apartment deputies searched the apartment for any remaining items and found $23.87 in U.S. currency, a silver dollar over 100 years old, several foreign coins, and commemorative coins. This money was logged and placed into the Johnson County (Kansas) Sheriff’s property room but never claimed.

Now in 2006 after a mandate from Sheriff Frank Denning to purge the property rooms of old items and return property to its rightful owners, the sheriff is seeing positive results.

Property Clerks Robert Johnston and Mel Soper contacted Mr. Bayles and through an evaluation process which included Bayles specifically identifying several specific coins the property was confirmed to be his and Johnston arranged for him to retrieve his property.
