…And it was found by a 9-year-old boy.
TAMPA, Fla. — Police say a gun found by a 9-year-old boy inside a bathroom stall at a movie theater in Tampa’s Ybor City neighborhood belonged to a Hillsborough County deputy.
The incident happened on Father’s Day, while Zane Noland, his 15-year-old brother and his dad were attending a 3 p.m. showing of the new Superman movie, “Man of Steel.”
Shortly after the film started, the boy said he went to the bathroom. The Tampa Bay Times ( http://goo.gl/v6TTD) reports he found a loaded Glock 26 on top of a toilet paper dispenser in the theater’s restroom. The child then told his father, 48-year-old Marine veteran Wesley Noland.
“Dad,” he said. “There’s a gun.”
See that? The owner was a police deputy. Where the hell was he keeping his gun that he needed to stash it on the toilet paper dispenser?
