Thousands of pieces of criminal evidence were ruined at the Valley City Police Department thanks to last weeks rain storm. Nearly 8 feet of water filled the basement after about 7 inches of rain fell in nearly 4 hours. Police officials have started to dig through the evidence to see what's salvageable. Evidence includes everything from cell phones and drug paraphernalia to important documents. Recovering it all could take months. It's not certain as to what effect this will have on certain cases.
