Car hadn't been processed

-Yeah, they couldn't ID the neighborhood guys who beat him up.
-Evidence didn't say much either.
-Car hadn't been processed.
-CSU didn't cover the scene?

(from: "Law and order, special victims unit", context: the detective are talking in front of a car that was involved in a crime).

What does it mean exactly "processed" here?

Thanks in advance.

    I read "processed" as having been gone over by technicians for clues, fingerprints, anything they can discover that might have a bearing on the case.
