    Officers issue warning about lost service pistol

    CHAMPAIGN – A loaded handgun belonging to an Urbana police officer has been lost, and might be in an area near Champaign's Barkstall Elementary School, police said Saturday.

    Police are urging parents to warn their children to avoid touching the gun if they find it, and to tell an adult immediately.

    The loss occurred Thursday afternoon when the officer placed a loaded, holstered handgun on top of a vehicle between 3:30 p.m. and 4 p.m. in the 3000 block of Champaign's Wynstone Drive, and then drove off without remembering it was there, police said.

    The officer drove south on Wynstone to Curtis Road, then headed east to Race Street and north to Windsor Road before remembering the gun on top of the vehicle.

    Police said a search was made on foot and metal detectors were used, but the gun hadn't been found as of Saturday evening.

    Urbana police notified Champaign police of the loss on Friday morning because the gun was last seen near Barkstall school.

    Anyone with information about the whereabouts of the gun is asked to call Urbana police at 384-2320. Or send an anonymous tip to Crimestoppers by going to the Web site at www.champaigncountycrimestoppers.com.

    Does it count as having an open container if it's ON the car instead of IN the car? :rofl:
