Posted this in my LiveJournal, and figured I might as well post it here, too.
About a year ago, Mrs. Animal's Sig-Sauer P225 was stolen, along with its expensive Bianchi holster and a clip full of Glasers.
Yesterday, I got a phone call from a detective from the West Metro Drug Task Force. The Sig was recovered at a crime scene. We've been worried about where that gun was, who had it, what they were doing with it - now we don't have that worry any more.
The detective told me that it's wrapped up as evidence now, possibly for six months to a year. I asked what happens after that, fearing that it would get crushed or something.
"It's your property," he told me, "so once the case is wrapped up, you can come pick it up."
I didn't think to ask about the $80 holster. I've got more 9mm Glasers.
