Except with the approval of the chief or his designee, no person shall leave any personal property in any area administered by the division in such a manner that the conditions surrounding its placement, when found, give indication that the owner has left the area administered by the division. Such property may be removed from the location at which it is found and stored by the division. The owner of such property, if known or can be found with reasonable effort, shall be notified and the owner shall be permitted to redeem such property by payment of a storage fee not to exceed one dollar per day plus the actual cost incurred in the recovery of such property. Any property unclaimed by the owner shall be disposed of in accordance with section 1546.10 of the Revised Code. This rule shall not apply to abandoned motor vehicles and trailers that are subject to licensing by the bureau of motor vehicles, or watercraft that are subject to the provisions of section 1547.53 of the Revised Code, or substances covered by rule 1501:46-3-13 of the Administrative Code, or to items placed at a geocaching site for which the area manager has given prior approval subject to the conditions thereof.
