Goodwill store gets cigar box with gun inside

By The Associated Press

ANDERSON — A cigar box held an unusual donation.

A Goodwill store in Anderson says it discovered an old unloaded revolver inside a box among the items given by an anonymous person Monday.

The gun was turned over to police. Maj. Joel Sandefur tells The Herald Bulletin says he's heard similar stories about unusual donations to thrift shops, but typically not guns.

Sam Perry, a spokesman for the Goodwill store, says "a sword, a spear" — they've seen it all. The store doesn't accept firearms.

Sandefur says the owner can contact police and recover the gun if it was dropped off by mistake.
