    A little over a month ago, a gave my cousin and her boyfriend a ride to McDonald's. I was stopped and he was arrested on warrants. My cousin had 2 guns in her purse, which her boyfriend admitted were his. I was given a traffic citation for expired license and then my cousin and I were free to go.

    Yesterday FedEx delivered documents from the ATF addressed to me stating that my property (listing the 2 guns) was going to be seized and had forms to contest the seizure.

    They aren't mine and I had never even seen them. They were in my cousin's purse and claimed by her biyfriend.

    Why have I received these documents?

    Does this mean the police believe the guns were mine or that her boyfriend (still incarcerated) is now claiming that they were mine?

    If the guns were not yours then disregard the notice. There is nothing for you to do and nothing to worry about.

    Probably just because your name was on the police report.
