How should evidence be packaged for submission to the Firearms and Toolmarks Unit?

All firearms must be unloaded when submitted – no exceptions. Firearms should be submitted in a handgun box or manila envelope with all factory seals reinforced with tape and initials.  For firearms evidence not needing Biology and/or Latent Print analysis, the item may be submitted in a sealed plastic bag. Loose ammunition should never be packaged in the same container as a firearm.
