A Nebraska Furniture Mart delivery driver may not be to blame for a gun that showed up during a Wednesday morning delivery at a west Lawrence home, police said.
Investigators are working to determine whether the gun belonged to the driver, or fell out of a piece of furniture that was being moved to a home on Diamondhead Drive.
“We were unable to determine if any crime occurred on this or not,” said Sgt. Michael Monroe, Lawrence police spokesman.
Monroe said the furniture had been sold, then immediately returned, then sold again to a Lawrence resident.
Police said the delivery driver said the gun wasn’t his, and officers are trying to find out whether it could belong to someone at the first house.
A Nebraska Furniture Mart spokesperson was not available Wednesday evening for comment.
