On Wednesday evening, EVSC officials were notified that a handgun had been found in the Boiler Room of Thompkins Middle School.

The 9 millimeter Beretta was discovered by an EVSC supportive services employee who was working on the HVAC system at Thompkins. He saw the gun on a pull-out computer keyboard drawer inside the school's Boiler Room, behind a locked steel door. He immediately notified his superior and the EVSC began its investigation. The Evansville Police Department was also notified.

The gun is registered to Jordan Stone, second shift EVSC custodian at Thompkins, who has a Personal Protection Permit to carry the handgun. He said he realized he had forgotten to take it off when he entered the building around 2:40 p.m., so he hid it on the computer keyboard drawer in the Boiler Room. Personal Protection Permits do not give an individual the right to carry a firearm on any school property.

The investigation was turned over to School Resource Officer Greg Brandenstein.
