California Chief of Police Leaves Duty Weapon Behind In Bathroom
The San Luis Obispo police chief’s gun was found Thursday night, a day after she reported it had gone missing after she left it in the bathroom at El Pollo Loco, police said.
A Los Osos man identified as Skeeter Carlos Mangan, 30, told officers he picked it up and put it in his pocket when he found it at the restaurant and then took it home, according to a news release from the Police Department.
The man’s brother-in-law reportedly called the Sheriff’s Office to let them know Mangan had it, the release says. Investigators questioned Mangan and confirmed he had the firearm.
Chief Deanna Cantrell issued a video apology Wednesday night for inadvertently leaving her gun behind in a stall at the restaurant on Los Osos Valley Road, where she’d stopped to eat lunch at about noon. Saying it was “irresponsible and careless” to leave her gun on a toilet paper dispenser in the bathroom of an El Pollo Loco restaurant.
