Military police had apparently missed the items during their investigation against Mascotta two years ago.
Among the items that were found were a silver-coated photo album with a personal inscription belonging to Ashkenazi; a whistle with a gold chain with a personal inscription; a set of eight pens; six pens with the IDF logo engraved on them; two compasses from former IDF Chief Dan Halutz and a watch with a personal inscription.

The officers also found binoculars on the television in the house as well as a classified notebook.
The officers informed military police of their findings and the IDF has renewed its investigation against Mascotta who is currently serving his term in a military prison. It is possible he will be charged with additional counts of theft.
