Detective Asks to Use Bathroom, Finds Stolen Gun

By  | 

JENSEN BEACH, Fla. – Authorities said a stolen gun was recovered when a detective tried to used the suspect's bathroom and couldn't get the toilet to work. A detective investigating the theft of a handgun, jewelry and cash from a Jensen Beach home was told a possible suspect might be staying at a Port St. Lucie hotel.

The detective met with a 21-year-old suspect and during an interview, the detective asked to use the man's bathroom.

When the detective couldn't get the toilet to flush, he took off the tank cover to see what the problem was. That's when he found the handgun and three magazines with bullets.

The man was charged last Monday with grand theft and grand theft of a firearm.
