Gun found inside book donated to Indiana library
VALPARAISO, Ind. — An employee at a northwest Indiana library found a gun inside a hollowed-out book donated to the branch.
The Times of Munster reported today that police in Valparaiso are holding the gun as evidence.
Assistant Library Director Phyllis Nelson says an employee at the Valparaiso branch of the Porter County Public Library discovered the antique-looking firearm when she opened the book earlier this week.
Police describe the weapon as a gold, wooden handled, 31-caliber, single shot, black powder gun.
