Redwood City police say their new social media efforts to return stolen items to their rightful owners are paying off.

Someone saw a charm from a bracelet and claimed it, 20 years after it was stolen from a San Jose home. Officers found the charm and other pieces of jewelry during a traffic stop in February.

Redwood City Police have posted pictures of the other recovered items on the department's Pinterest page.
