BOWLING GREEN, Ky. (AP) — Authorities say a Bowling Green police officer who was apprehending a man found a handgun that had been stolen from his sister.

Citing an arrest citation, the Bowling Green Daily News ( ) reports Officer James Lewis ran the license plate of a car he didn’t recognize that was parked in his neighborhood early Monday.

Lewis found out that the car belonged to 47-year-old Scottie Day, who was a suspect in several thefts.

The officer spotted Day walking behind a nearby home. When Lewis approached, police say Day threw a hat to the ground. Inside the hat was the handgun that Lewis’ sister had had stolen from her vehicle.

Day was charged with possession of a handgun by a convicted felon, among other charges. It’s unclear whether he has an attorney.
