Property and Evidence Room
All property and evidence submitted to the Weber County Sheriff’s Office Property and Evidence Room is maintained securely. The entire process is documented in a way that is sufficiently accurate and complete to satisfy any court which has reason to examine the process.
The Property and Evidence Managers major responsibilities are to receive, store, and release or dispose of all incoming property, and to maintain a proper chain of custody.
Property and Evidence in our custody is held for the following reasons:
- Evidence in criminal cases
- Found/Abandoned Property
Property is released only to the legal owner of the property or their designate and by appointment only. If property is being held as evidence in a criminal case, it cannot be released without a release order submitted by either the city attorney or prosecuting attorney, depending on which court is handling the case. This is usually done 30 days after sentencing.
Found property is held for 90 days with a reasonable effort made to find the identity of the owners. Personal property for safe keeping will be held for 90 days.
Citizens looking for "lost/found" property can also check the Weber County Sheriff’s Office facebook page.
