He says if the evidence is determined to be that they need to seize it, they give the individuals a receipt for what’s taken.

If they don’t need it, they return it back to the home where they found the device.

The D-C-I also recently acquired a dog that can detect hidden electronic storage devices that can then be analyzed in the mobile lab.
