How long do Ohio police keep looking for stolen guns? Well, 35 years or until they find it, whichever is last.

“Deputy Tim Rammel was doing a routine check of the NCIC hits and came across one that matched for a stolen gun. Simple enough, however, the orignal theft report was taken in November of 1981. After a couple trips to the Pawn Shop and contacting the original owner’s way back then, we were able to locate a stolen gun from a 1981 theft case. Awesome.”
