Museum recovers $50,000 gun

RICHMOND, Virginia (AP) — A Civil War revolver that was stolen more than 30 years ago from the Museum of the Confederacy has turned up again.

Collections Manager Catherine Wright tells WTVR-TV that the .36-caliber Spiller & Burr revolver was stolen in 1975 when the museum collection was moved to a new building.

A woman in Knoxville, Tenn., discovered the gun in December in her late father’s belongings. She tried to sell it to an Ohio antique dealer who traced the gun to the museum.

WTVR reports that the woman’s father collected Civil War items. It’s not known how he came into possession of the gun. The woman will not face charges.

Wright says the Spiller & Burr revolver was one of the first Confederate-manufactured handguns. This one has an estimated value of $50,000.

Officer suspended for ticketing child
LOUISVILLE, Kentucky (AP) — A Metro Louisville police officer who ticketed a 7-year-old boy for hitting his truck with a ball has been suspended for 15 days.

The Courier-Journal reports an internal affairs investigation shows Officer Cody Chapelle violated department policies in the October 2009 incident.

Chapelle wrote the boy a citation, charging him with third-degree criminal mischief.

Police Chief Robert White said on Wednesday that one of the department’s greatest assets is common sense and said Chapelle showed none in writing the ticket.

White said the citation was appropriately thrown out of court.

Chapelle’s attorney, Mary Sharp, says her client will appeal the suspension.
