Criminal charge filed over pistol lost in Tillamook theater
TILLAMOOK, OR (KPTV) -
The man who lost his gun in a Tillamook movie theater had his concealed handgun license revoked and he will now face criminal charges.
A deputy went to the home of Gary Quackenbush, 61, Wednesday night and revoked the license. The sheriff said Quackenbush fully cooperated with the deputy.
On Thursday, the Tillamook County district attorney filed a reckless endangering charge against Quackenbush.
Police said two seventh-grade boys found his gun during a field trip to see The Hobbit.
They told a school staff worker who called police. Officers took possession of the small caliber, fully loaded, semi-automatic pistol. Police said the safety was off and there was one round in the chamber.
