UPDATE 2! Confiscated evidence identified!
It seems like eons ago that George Anthony told police that on June 24th, when he went to change the tires on Casey Anthony's car he found the gas cans he reported missing in Casey's trunk.
Less than an hour ago, in the dark hours this Saturday morning, Orange County Sheriff's Office investigators removed evidence from George Anthony's car.
Internet crime forums are speculating that they were looking for a wheel wedge. My close friend Jelly (she is SO funny) wondered, "Were they just sitting around eating donuts and someone said HOLY CARP! The wedge!"
Example of a car wedge.
IMO, I think it's possible LE received a tip or, there could be phone taps in place. Looking at the photo at the Orlando Sentinel link, it's not clear if a wedge could fit in the evidence bag the investigator is holding.
WFTF is reporting:
Also, early Saturday morning, a source close to the investigation said deputies removed a weapon from the trunk of a car belonging to Casey' father, George Anthony. Such a discovery on the Anthony property could have imperiled Casey Anthony's release from jail, but a spokesman for Orange County Corrections said that a judge ruled that Casey presumably had nothing to do with the weapon.
Maybe LE thought it was prudent to remove a weapon from the home where a defendant is under house arrest with an ankle bracelet. I'm also guessing they probably didn't want anyone in the Anthony family threatening any of the protesters.
MyFoxOrlando is reporting that authorities were alerted to the firearm on the property by a tip. The weapon on the premises could have sent Casey back to jail, since it was a violation of her bond agreement. That's too bad because that's exactly where she belongs.
