Officer recovers sister’s stolen gun, catches felon

Authorities say a Bowling Green police officer who was apprehending a man found a handgun that had been stolen from the officer’s sister.
    
Citing an arrest citation, the Bowling Green Daily News reports Officer James Lewis ran the license plate of a car he didn’t recognize that was parked in his neighborhood early Monday.
    
Lewis found out that the car belonged to 47-year-old Scottie Day, who was a suspect in several thefts.
    
The officer spotted Day walking behind a nearby home. When Lewis approached, police say Day threw a hat to the ground. Inside the hat was the handgun that Lewis’ sister had had stolen from her vehicle.
    
Day was charged with possession of a handgun by a convicted felon, among other charges. It’s unclear whether he has an attorney.
