Bellingham police recovered a gun from the wheel of a car parked at a dealership late Thursday, Nov. 29 — a possible clue in the robbery of a Blue Cab driver and his van earlier in the week.
An employee of Roger Jobs Motors, the dealership where the cab was ditched, found a gun sitting on top of a parked vehicle’s wheel, behind the wheel well, late Thursday, said Bellingham police spokesman Mark Young. It was wrapped in a piece of clothing.
Young declined to identify the caliber of the handgun, what kind of clothing it was in and the model of the car.
Police are checking for fingerprints. They had searched the dealership with police dogs on the night of the robbery, but the search came up cold.
