Gun found in East Albany store trash can

A worker at an east Albany store finds a gun in a restroom trash can.

An employee found the gun in the men's room at the Dollar Tree on Cordele Road about 8:30 Monday morning.

Albany Police were called and determined the weapon was just a B-B gun, but officers say you should never touch a gun if you find one."Parents should educate their children about firearms," said Albany Police media manager Phyllis Banks.  "That if they see one that they don't touch it.  And they contact an adult immediately."

Store employees told  they have no idea who owns the B.B. gun or how it got in their trash can.

Police took the gun and are keeping it as recovered property.
