BMW Dealer's Call Turns Up 'Forgotten' Gun

— Durham police got a call Monday after a BMW dealer asked a customer to return a loaner car because someone reported they had left something under the front seat. It turned out to be a handgun.

The man had been given the car a few days earlier after he brought his own car in for service at Performance BMW. When the dealer called, the current driver naturally looked under the seat.

Police were investigating. There was no word on whether any charges would be filed.
