Imagine using the restroom at your local bank and finding a loaded handgun on the back of the toilet. A Guaranty Bank employee discovered the gun Tuesday and called police, said Brookfield police Capt. Phil Horter.
A short time later, an employee of the Dunbar Armored security firm called the bank, realizing he had left the weapon when he made a stop at the bank. The gun was later returned.
Horter said certain security personnel can be licensed to carry a handgun in Wisconsin.
Police say they don't expect to cite the Dunbar employee for his forgetfulness.
Sean Gibbons, director of communications at Hunt Valley, Md.-based Dunbar International Inc., said the company was aware of the matter and that it had been appropriately addressed, but he declined to be more specific.
