The Los Angeles Police Department has recovered over 1000 stolen items headed for a shop in South L.A., according to KPCC. The goods include jewelry and high-end handbags and are collectively worth around $300,000, according to ABC. The LAPD has created a gallery online of all the stolen items and urges anyone who was the victim of burglary between January 1 and August 17, 2016 to take a look at them.

The police believe the items were headed for a watch store on 27th Street and Vermont Avenue near the USC campus. The shop has bought and sold stolen items in the past, according to KPCC. The shop owner had been arrested and is out on bail.

The items were recovered on April 18 after police served a search warrant to the shop, according to NBC.

LAPD tells LAist that most of the items have yet to be claimed by their owners.
