The complainant and his 9 year old son entered the restroom at the movie theatre a little after 3:00pm on Sunday afternoon. The boy walked into a stall and told his father, " Daddy, there is a gun in here." The father, who has a concealed weapons permit, retrieved the loaded Glock 26 and called 911. Officers arrived and took possesion of the weapon. TPD's Firearms Unit and FDLE will process the gun to determine the owner and if it has ever been used in a crime.
