Police: Man put gun in son’s pack
An Illinois man is charged with reckless conduct after authorities say his 4-year-old son found a gun in a backpack his father had brought to him at day care.
Authorities said 32-yearold Joshua Finley of Maryville packed a “nap time bag” that also contained sheets and blankets, then took it to a day care in Glen Carbon on July 2. The child opened the bag a few minutes later and found the gun.
The day care told parents the child immediately took the gun to a teacher, and police were called.
