Drew Peterson has demanded that police return property seized during the investigation of his missing fourth wife, the Chicago Tribune reports. The goods include two cars, guns, ammo, iPods, a computer, and schoolbooks. His attorneys say state cops are keeping the items just to annoy him. They also allege that city police officials are going after him unfairly because they're angry he's getting a pension.

Peterson, also suspected in the death of third wife, says the Nov. 1 seizure harms his children. “The state has had ample time to listen to all the songs on the two iPods belonging to the children, listen to all the 23 music CDs, and to read all the school books in the backpack.” Stacy Peterson’s family is conducting a search today before holding a prayer vigil.
