A 41-year-old Bridgeport man told police he lost his 9mm pistol at a teen party over the weekend while doing “private security” work there, authorities said.
The man, who has not been identified, said he was working at a teen party Saturday night at a home on Maplewood Avenue. He said he’d been hired by a man known only as “James” and that the two had met “around the block,” according to police.
He told officers his job was to make sure no weapons were brought into the party, and said the gun must have fallen when he stood up from a chair around 3 a.m., police said.
The gun was reported missing on Tuesday, three days after it reportedly disappeared.
Anyone with information is asked to contact Bridgeport police.
