'[OT]: Fingerprints - how to dust for them,'

I've got an object that was tossed into
my yard - that most likely has fingerprints
on it (Okay! It's am empty beer bottle!).

Two questions:

1) How would I 'dust' for any prints?

2) How would I then lift these for comparison
  with some sort of database later on?

PS. I'll do a google search too ...

with aluminium or iron *powder* & a soft brush, bt mebbe other powders work
also.

with common transparent sticky tape

(it worked like this in my 'sherlock holmes' toybox a million years ago)

goodluck

With any finely ground powder. Toner whould work fine, also finely ground
flour. A very soft and dry brush works for spreading the powder evenly
after you sprinkle it on. Then blow the excess away. You can use scotch
tape to lift them off. Rellay not an expert here. Got these tricks from
kid's magazines years ago. Never used them.

Do you plan to threaten the thrower or go to the police ? ;-)

them?

Only if such activities result in a trend (then go to the
police, that is!). So far, it is only for 'the record' on
the basis of one occurance. What is puzzling is where this
object wound up - it wasn't accessable from the street nor
was it easily accessable from the vicinity of the front
year but rather it was tucked in between a fence section
and the house. It could have been the neighborhood 'kids'
at that rate (hiding the beer bottle from their parents).
