Is there anything else you feel is relevant to your question or anything else you would like to add before we continue?
I see. In that case, since you want to make some enquiries as to whether you can collect your property, you will need to speak to the officer in charge of the case.
However, once the police are disputing your ownership of the property in question, then you may have to prove it is yours. Whilst this can easily be done if you have receipts, if you haven’t got these then you have to think more creatively. You should perhaps have photographs of you with the property.
Once the police still will not return your belongings then you may need to contact a local solicitor with you because you may need to bring an action under the Police Property Act 1897 to ask the Magistrates’ Court to compel the Police to return your belongings.
