I thought I would share this with everyone. This is an e-mail I received today from Geocaching.com
Your cache "Border Patrol #1" has been confiscated by the Mountain View Police Department. Here is the email we received at email@example.com
"I work for the Mountain View Police Dept in California, in the Property &
Evidence room. A citizen found a geocache and turned it into our Police Dept
since they didn't know what it was. Is there a way to track down the owner
of this particular cache? Generally we keep found property for 90 days and
then destroy it, but I'd rather be able to return it to its rightful owner."

Property & Evidence Officer
Mountain View Police Department
Please contact him right away.

He says he'll hold it for a maximum of 90 days. There is no broken law,
I talked to the guy today and he seemed really interested in the sport of geocaching. I plan to pick up the cache next week and talk to him more about caching too.
