Sheriff's deputies say an employee at a Goodwill store in Spartanburg County found a loaded gun in some donated items.
Authorities say the manager found a Colt .25 caliber handgun while unpacking a box of glassware that came from a warehouse.
The employee unloaded the gun, placed it in a safe and called authorities.
Goodwill spokesman Brad Majors says the agency gets so many donations that it's impossible to track down the party who donated the gun. Majors says Goodwill takes in millions of pounds of donations in the 16 counties it serves.
Deputies say the gun was not stolen. They've placed it into evidence, but so far, no one has come forward to claim it.
