The Benton County, Arkansas Sheriff’s Department reported the recovery of a shotgun that a part-time deputy had lost last week.
The sheriff’s office reports that Deputy Mark Heiner placed the gun on top of his car and drove away. A gun shop called deputies and reported that someone had found the gun and turned it in to them.
Deputies say the gun was virtually destroyed. The department terminated Heiner over the incident.
