TULSA, Oklahoma -- Tulsa County Sheriff's Office deputies are working to reunite people with some of their property they've left behind at the Tulsa State Fair.

They've collected car keys, credit cards, even Mega-Ride passes that people could easily pocket for themselves. 

A red biohazard sack even contains a wallet someone fished out of a Porta Potty just so they could turn it in.

"People are pulling ride tickets out of their pocket and they're dropping their IDs or their car keys. There's no telling how much comes from being turned upside down on some of these rides," Sergeant Shannon Clark, Tulsa County Sheriff's Office, said. "People put their purse down to play a game, and they get excited for winning and totally forget that they left their purse."

Whatever hasn't been claimed by the end of the fair will be turned over to Expo Square security.
