Instead, it's rumbling across the state in a converted mobile home.

The Indiana State Police gave a tour Wednesday of the mobile laboratory, which allows police to analyze computer hard drives, cell phones, digital cameras and other electronics at a crime scene right after officers serve a search warrant.

It was developed by police in conjunction with Purdue University, the National White Collar Crime Center and the U.S. attorney's office for the Southern District of Indiana.

The lab has been used in about 50 cases during the past two years, State Police Detective Tim Keller said.

It is most often used in child pornography cases, when investigators must sift through thousands of computer files.
