Perkins Township landscaper finds shotgun in bushes

Jessica Cuffman • Oct 1, 2012 at 3:02 PM

The landscaper was clearing brush from a rockbed behind Vacationland Credit Union when he found the gun at about 11 a.m. and told bank employees about it, who called Perkins police.

Officers found a silver Mossberg 500 shotgun, which they photographed and unloaded, discovering five live rounds in the magazine tube and one spent round in the chamber.

Reviewing past police reports, officers found one report of a shots fired call in that area. But a trace of the gun’s serial number turned up no identifying information.
