Geocache Description:

This is the follow-up to the Crime Scene: Gathering of Evidence event. You'll need to complete it or Cache of Evidence first. The above coordinates are for parking, not the geocache!

If you attended the Crime Scene: Gathering of Evidence or have completed the Cache of Evidence then you are ready to tackle this one. Use the clues you gathered from the evidence to solve the location of Apprehended!. The coordinate puzzle appears below.

You won't have to do any bushwhacking to find this, so please stay on sidewalks, trail, paths and such. The geocache is hidden pretty well to avoid unintentional finds by the numerous visitors to the area. Please be discrete and rehide the container carefully. The geocache container was a .30 cal ammo box. The original contents included a log book, the Apprehended Bug, handcuffs, plastic badges, a getaway car, and other nifty stuff.

UPDATE! October 17, 2002 The original container was stolen. I have replaced it with a micro-cache in the same location (see photo). The original was well-hidden by loam when I placed it. The new micro-cache is at ground level and behind a clump of moss. If you hide it as carefully as I did, it should not be found on accident. Thank you!

I took 18 coordinate readings at the location over the course of five visits. The reception varied widely, as did the coordinates. I've averaged them and believe them to be pretty darn close. There's a good chance that you'll need the hint, not so much because of the coordinates but because it is well hidden. Please don't post any coordinates in the logs!
