So I get sent to Brooklyn Center tonight to get some "real estate" shots of some house involved in a murder... so I get up there and notice a nearby cache, and the house in question no yellow tape or anything that screams a crime occurred here. So I call my people and they say they think it may have involved some sort of golf course or park within walking distance, and sure enough I see a cop car and yellow tape. So off we go to shoot the latest in crime. So while I'm there I see I'm only 350 feet from the cache, hmmm a 2 for 1 work and a cache. But nooooo some criminal had to basically commit his crime super close to ground zero, so it was all yellow taped off. What a bummer. I could only get to within 150 feet of the cache, and I'm thinking they wouldn't have liked me searching around, just a guess. (Oh and said moron in question is in custody, I guess it was some domestic-related type thing, nothing to fear in Brooklyn Center) Just my luck... all in a day's work I guess.

I saw the pictures on the news and recognized the area as a place I had found a cache.

Been there and found the cache also, minus the yellow crime seen tape.

Has it been disabled? What attribute would you use for that, the skull & crossbones?

I posted a note saying they may want to check just to make sure it survived the search for evidence.
