Should be some CCTV in there, and take away the glass on the left for fingerprints and interrogate the wifi router .

PS Never been arrested so do they take and have a fingerprint database here ??????

Don't know if they have a fingerprints db, but the gun will also have fingerprints.

In all seriousness that's a good question.

I had to have my prints taken locally 2 years ago so that I could send them off for an FBI background check. I went to some ministry and a guy took my prints. They had the ink, cards, the whole shebang. I wonder if they have the resources to take digital prints as well and maintain a database.

Maybe when @Felgerkarb wakes from dreams of motor-boating Christy Canyon, he can shed some light, if any.
