A spent 9mm casing and a mess of sunflower seeds in the glove box. Since it was never put into police service, I was kinda surprised on the casing.

A crack rock under the rear seat. Guess someone missed it on a search and a perp probably stuffed it to avoid getting charged. After that I called our local PD and had them bring a drug doggie for a quick sniff check of the car... just in case.

Have found live rounds of a couple different calibers, two tuning forks for radar calibration/testing and a jump drive. Need to find a junk computer to plug it into to see what is on it.

I found a police dept gas credit card in the sunglasses holder. Called the pd up and they told me to cut it in half and send them a picture.

On only one of my PPV's, I found the ballistic panels had been removed. Had the sticker on the door panel though.

several rounds of .40 ammo, but the best was a stack of DVDs. Turns out it was all pulled from the dashcam. Pretty cool seeing my car in action.

Rear door lock knobs for a Tahoe in the spare tire well of our Caprice! Great coincidence, as our Tahoe PPV didn't have them when we got it. Nice to have spare parts for one car show up with another. :lol:

Second odd bit; both vehicles came from the same reseller. I doubt they dropped them there. I suspect they had been riding there since the last visit to the up fitters for decommission, but who knows?
