Since there are no charges against Thomas Piatek, he should have his property returned.
And the state (and the Feds) coughed up all of the firearms and ammo that they had confiscated.
While I don't think that he is a stellar example of an Indiana gun owner, he is still a citizen of the US and should be treated accordingly, now that the charges are dropped.
And I am glad to see that he has been.
Not sure what happened to his dogs though.
