    Post handed in

    1) If someone one handed in a purse, please put it in the lost and found drawer.

    2) I handed in my assingment to the TA.

    3) She handed the egg to the king. (this line is from a story "the king's egg")

    In sentence no.1 & 2 there are "in" after the words "handed" but in sentence no.3 there isn't any "in". Please explain when is it necessary to use "in".
