Plymouth police officer loses gun in courthouse bathroom

Posted: Updated:

WAREHAM (AP) — A Plymouth police officer's gun has gone missing after he inadvertently left it in a courthouse bathroom.

Chief Michael Botieri says Capt. John Rogers Jr. put the gun down in the bathroom of Wareham District Court at about 3 p.m. Monday, then left with taking it. When he went back for it minutes later, it was gone.

He immediately notified court officials.

Court officers and local police, with the help of a weapon-sniffing dog, did a sweep of the courthouse and passed everyone inside through a metal detector without success.

The Patriot Ledger (http://bit.ly/116DBii ) reports that court officers collected the names of everyone on the court list of appearances and also searched the parking lot, the bushes and underneath vehicles without finding the weapon.
