You should be able to get that done at your local PD.
The reason why I mentioned it is because I bought a stolen gun once. Of course I didn't know it was stolen.
I found out it was stolen when I got pulled over and the LEO ran the serial number. He took me down at gunpoint and cuffed me. The only thing that kept me from being arrested and charged, was that the Moron I bought the gun from gave me a copy of his DL and signed a Bill of Sale.
The police let me go, hunted him down and arrested him. He was a suspect in several burglaries.
Hope this helps.
ETA: I forgot to mention: I had to forfeit the gun and I never got my money back.
