    Default How to Recover Stolen Property Without a Serial Number

    My question involves personal property located in the State of: Wisconsin

    My Cub Cadet Riding lawn mower was stolen a couple weeks ago. I didn't file a police report mainly because I don't have the serial number, so I didn't think they would be any help.

    A friend contacted me yesterday and said he knows someone that just got a new Cub Cadet for $200. Doesn't take a detective to figure out how someone gets a $1700 mower for $200. He's going to take a closer look at it to try to determine if it's mine (I'm certain it is).

    So, I don't have the serial number, but there are easily identifiable marks on the mower. A dent in the front grill plate, a missing wheel on the mower deck, which could have been replaced by now, but if not I know it's mine.

    I have the receipt from purchase, but after hours on the phone there was no way to recover the serial number.
    Are the identifiable marks enough to recover the mower If I were to report it to the police?

    You should report the theft to the police, along with the identifying information you have and your suspicion that the mower at issue may be yours. You should then let the police investigate the possibility that the mower is yours.

    Meanwhile, see if you can get a serial number from the dealer where you made your purchase, from the manufacturer if you registered a warranty, or from documents that came with the mower including any unreturned warranty card (if the serial number was pre-printed on the card.)
