Gun Found in Box of Frozen Meat is From Greeley

New Mexico authorities found a hand-gun and ammunition in a package of frozen ribs at a Roswell, NM grocery store.  A police report shows that the meat came from the Swift Packing Plant in Greeley, and is marked with the date June 8th, 2011. That’s over a year ago.  Call me crazy, but shouldn’t the grocery store open a box of meat or toss it out before it sits around for over a year?

Greeley police say they’re reviewing cases to see if the gun was used in any crimes. They say the pistol has not been reported stolen.  Police have now entered the gun into the National Crime Information Center database. They will conduct a federal firearms trace, which will track the serial number to the last place it was sold or documented. That could take several weeks.

The gun is  a semi-automatic Rock Island Armory .38 Super.
