This is disconcerting.

According to the Waterloo-Cedar Falls Courier, a loaded 9-shot handgun was found wrapped in a shirt in a donation pile at a Goodwill location in Waterloo on Sunday.

Police were called to the thrift store after the gun was discovered.

A High Standard R-106 .22-caliber, nine-shot revolver was found by Goodwill staff wrapped in a shirt among a box of clothing, according to Waterloo Police Capt. Dave Mohlis.


8 rounds were left in the 9 round chamber. Police say they're unsure if the gun was donated by mistake or on purpose. Either way, it's been sent to the Iowa Department of Criminal Investigation to be destroyed.
