A fake firearm landed one capital resident in police custody on Friday evening, though not for obvious reasons.
The man was sitting conspicuously at a grocery store and – unsurprisingly – his sham shooter attracted the attention of patrolling police.
After confirming the gun was in fact a fake, a police search turned up several bags of very real crystal meth.
While the man’s motivations are as yet unknown, police are questioning him in custody.
