A good friend of mine had his lake home broken in-to. A lot of expensive stuff was stolen. About two weeks or so later the sheriffs office called to say they caught the guy and had recovered mine friend's stuff. About a week later when he went to the sheriff's office all the stuff was gone except for a clock radio. He did not say anything about it has the insurance was ready to pay anyway. Not exactly what you asked but close. In some areas all guns used in crimes are destroyed. Even if used legally(I don't know).
