Posted: Updated:

WAREHAM (FOX 25 / MyFoxBoston.com) – A captain with the Plymouth Police Department reportedly had his gun stolen inside Wareham District Court on Monday.

Capt. John W. Rogers Jr. reportedly put down his handgun in the bathroom around 3 p.m., and when he went to retrieve it, the gun was gone. The gun is still missing, reports The Enterprise.

Rogers immediately contacted court security, and the Massachusetts State Police K-9 Unit, as well as other authorities, responded to the courthouse.

According to the newspaper, those inside the courthouse were ordered to resubmit to a metal-detector scan, and employees were asked to sign a login sheet and to make a list of anyone who had been in their offices. Court officers also collected the names of those who were scheduled to appear in court.

The investigation is ongoing.
