Update on Gun Find From Last Week

Remember the discussion from last week when a reader found a pistol? Well, I just got a great update:

“Good news! I got a call just now from a Sgt. Reimel of the DC police forensics division…he told me he saw my story on your blog and wanted to follow up with me.

Once the gun came in they were able to test-fire it and they recorded the ballistics images and uploaded them to the ATF’s ballistics database…if it matches anything it can be used in prosecution.

The Sargent was extremely forthcoming and friendly and made me feel a LOT better about the whole situation.

I guess you never know who’s reading your site!

I hope you put this up on the site…I think that their good work in this case should be recognized!

    I’m glad, because the way they dealt with you all was just wrong. This is better.

  • Curious, did they just say, “Oops, our bad” with the way it was previously handled? Was there any offer of accountability so that this kind of incident doesn’t have to be blog central in order for it to get resolved in the future?
