UPDATE: A Murfreesboro man says that he found what looked to be a police duty belt near the soccer fields on East Main Street on the MTSU campus. What is even more bizarre about this case, the belt had a Glock Model 22 .40-caliber pistol in a holster attached to the belt along with magazines that were fully loaded. The good news is that authorities were able to track down the rightful owner. The bad news is that the person who stole it has not been caught. 

An MPD supervisor was able to track down the owner of the weapon and contacted him on Tuesday.  After receiving notification, Kenneth Parrish and Joseph Watts of Antioch came to MPD to claim the weapon.  They are both security guards.  

Sgt. Kyle Evans told WGNS that Watts’ vehicle was broken into and the gun belt and gun were stolen in Mt. Juliet.  Proof of ownership was shown to the Records section at the MPD and the pistol was released to Watts.
