LAKEWOOD, Colo. (CBS4) – A Lakewood woman is hoping she might have your lost pair of keys.READ MORE: Debris, Rising Water Rush Along Black Creek As Flash Flood Warnings Plague Glen Haven, Cameron Peak Fire Burn Area
“I just figure if I can find one person, if I can give one person their key back, then right on I did a good thing,” said Nikki Ozzello.
A work truck for the Ozzello company was stolen from in front of a foreman’s house on July 2. The company assumed it was gone forever until Commerce City police called on July 18 saying they’d found the truck.
“The truck was involved in eluding police and then later the same day they found it parked in a driveway. It was packed to the gills with crow bars, window breakers bolt cutters. I think they were using my truck to go around rob people,” said Ozzello.
When she started cleaning out the trunk she found tons of presumably stolen items from DVDs to clothes. Also inside were about a dozen key rings totaling more than 90 keys.
“Keys are expensive, chip keys are really expense and a lot of people don’t have the means to replace them. Or they don’t have the keys to make new keys,” Ozzello said about her motivation to find the keys’ rightful owners.
The keys look like they can unlock anything from homes to cars to machine equipment.READ MORE: CDOT Says Drivers Should Pack A Few Extra Things While Traveling This Summer
Ozzello posted on Craigslist.org to see if any owners were out there.
“A key is only good if you know what lock it goes to,” she said.
