Loaded revolver found inside jacket donated to Goodwill

AUGUSTA, Ga. -- A loaded handgun has been found inside a Goodwill clothing donation bin in Georgia.

Gun found in Capitol toilet stall

According to an incident report, Richmond County sheriff's Deputy Leslie Gaiter says a revolver was found inside the pocket of a coat that had been donated by an unidentified person in Augusta. The firearm, a fully loaded RG-14 revolver, had not been reported missing and was handed over to the sheriff's office.

Workers find about three guns a year buried inside donated items, according to Barry L. Paschal, Senior Director of Marketing and Communications at Goodwill.

Paschal said that they also find ammunition and collect the bullets until they have enough stock to turn over to the Sheriff's office, CBS affiliate WRDW reports.
