This is absolutely correct it would seem... Since the evidence was seized correctly (it is assumed) for a different crime, there was no fault on the
part of government here, so one couldn't claim they gathered it incorrectly... Colonel's a lawyer isn't he? Maybe he could shed some light...but
it seems the law is a-ok on this one...
Poetic justice, don't you think?
I see your fear of a domino effect though, but it seems that if one is willing to assume the punishment of the crime (burglary in this case)...then it
may just be that the burglar knew of it, and broke in to find said evidence... This is what I'm getting from this...and I'd say protecting your
sister is worth a little jail stint, community service, for unarmed burglary (especially if that's all that was taken, the article doesn't say...)
