I have wondered how many pieces of evidence were turned in since it's no questions asked at them. Nice if the police destroy your murder weapon for you.
Honestly, I seriously doubt there are very many. Most criminals don't think that in-depth about it. It's far easier and faster to just toss a murder weapon off a bridge than it is to hold on to it until the next voluntary turn-in comes around.

I tend to agree nickel. I think many of them would be paranoid to hand it over for whatever reason also.

I saw last year a guy turned in an actual gun, WWII pen I believe. Unbelieavable but true. They haven't made the pen firearms for years.
