The Oklahoma County Sheriff’s Office is asking for the public’s help in finding the owners of 11 commemorative rings that were discovered in the department’s evidence vault. 

The rings vary in size and origin as some are from Oklahoma City-area high schools while others are dedicated to military branches. 

“They’ve been in our possession for I don’t know how long,” OCSO Historian Sgt. Bradley Wynn said. “This is part of an annual effort to purge and cleanse out our evidence and lost and found.”

At 74 years old, an Air Force ring is the oldest in the collection with an inscribed date of 1947. 

Anyone who claims ownership will need to provide “enough evidence to reasonably identify ownership,” according to the Sheriff’s Office

“The sheriff’s office is all about keeping our community safe, and part of that is safekeeping of items that we find. We don’t want to just hold onto it in the closet and throw it away eventually because it’s junk, we want to try to return people’s property to them,” Wynn said. 

Below is a list of descriptions for each of the eleven rings. Claims of ownership can be submitted by sending an email to evidence@oklahomacounty.org or by calling 405-713-1946
