WACO, TX (KXXV) -

A Waco Police Department crime scene technician who testified earlier in the first Twin Peaks trial took the stand on day 11 to discuss evidence she recovered at the scene of the Twin Peaks shootout.

Christopher Jacob Carrizal, the president of the Dallas Chapter of the Bandidos, was indicted on charges of engaging in criminal activity and directing activities of a criminal street gang.

Marissa Salley testified she recovered 11 bullet casings Waco Police officers fired, some of them located near the vehicle of SWAT officers Heath Jackson and Michael Bucher. A grand jury cleared both officers of any wrongdoing for their involvement in the Twin Peaks shooting. 

The crime scene technician said she also recovered casings fired by others found near a vehicle at the Don Carlos parking lot and the patio of the Twin Peaks restaurant.

According to Salley, she also recovered guns hidden in unusual locations of the restaurant.

“It was actually a barrel with lukewarm water that was thawing out meat. I did dig that one out," Salley said.

She also recalled finding guns in toilet bowls and beverage containers at the restaurant.

Prosecutor Amanda Dillon asked: “You actually had to dig into every box, toilet bowl, every ceiling tile, I supposed, within Twin Peaks.”

Salley replied luckily they had the assistance of Texas Rangers.

Crime Scene Technician Matthew Davis took the stand on Wednesday testifying about recovering two bullets that had been fired at the scene. He said during the last sweep he conducted before reopening the scene a few days after the shootout, he found those projectiles on the sidewalk in front of Don Carlos restaurant and at that Twin Peaks parking lot.

Angie McCallister, a former Crime Scene Technician, who is a crime analyst now, said she arrived at the scene around 11 p.m. on May 17, 2015, after she helped gather evidence at the hospital.

"I saw handguns, pretty much anything under the sun, that you can think of, knives, bats, chains, brass knuckles,” McCallister said.

On Wednesday, testimony did not reveal the owners of the weapons described. 

All the crime scene technicians who took the stand did reveal the amount of evidence was overwhelming.

Salley testified police even ran out of cones to mark evidence. 

The trial will resume on Thursday morning.
