If the police dept seized a bunch of property that they believed to be stolen, but eventually cannot prove that any of it is, what happens to it? Does it just get returned to the person charged with the crime? Or do they just keep it forever? I'm not referring to illegal items, I'm referring to electronics like tv's, laptops, ipods, and other things like a big rolling toolbox and random other things. Like do they have to prove something came from somewhere or they can just believe it was stolen at some point and they keep it?
