Seattle Officer Left Rifle on Cruiser Trunk

June 29, 2011  | 

A Seattle Police officer will face an internal investigation for leaving a semi-automatic patrol rifle on the lid of his cruiser's trunk in plain view while downtown.

The officer, identified as Sgt. Bill Collins, was apparently unloading his equipment from his patrol car, in a police precinct garage and placed the rifle on the trunk of a nearby cruiser. Lt. Deanna Nollette then drove away in the patrol vehicle without realizing the rifle was on the trunk.

The patrol car was parked a few blocks away from the West Precinct in front of the Roosevelt Hotel around 9 p.m. Monday when at least two people spotted the rifle.
