Items seized during Balboa water-gun war investigation.
A judge has released lists of items found during the investigation of a water-gun battle that caused structural damage to Balboa Park's Lily Pond on August 12.
The cars and home and toy chest of event organizer Matthew Hardick were all searched, as were the artisanal reclaimed-hardwood storage units of numerous hipsters. All of the defendants have pleaded not guilty to the willful destruction of City Property and the deliberate disturbance of a protected species.
