MIAMI – A box where clothes and shoes are typically dropped off as donations became the site of a police investigation Friday morning in Miami.
Miami police Officer Kenia Fallat said a duffel bag containing a handgun and various magazines was discovered by an employee at the drop box along North Federal Highway.
The man, who identified himself only as Jose, said he found the bag sitting on top of a pile of donations when he unlocked the box.
He said employees sometimes find drugs inside the boxes, but he never expected to find a bag of weapons.
Police are investigating to determine where the gun came from and if it's been used in a violent crime.
