CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) - A local cop is breathing a sigh of relief after his official police weapon is turned in.

Cops say a man found the police officer's gun Sunday at E. 116 and Benham in Cleveland.

According to the report the gun was loaded with 17 rounds and it belonged to a narcotics detective.

Apparently it had never been reported stolen and the cop may not have even realized he lost it.
