JUNEAU - A 24-year-old Juneau woman went into a public restroom packing heat and left burned.
The Juneau Police Department reports Veronica Balle-Arnes was carrying a Ruger .380 - a small pocket pistol - worth about $400 with her Friday night.
She told police she took the gun out of her waistband and set it on top of a toilet paper dispenser in the women's room at the Fisherman's Wharf, a building on Juneau's downtown waterfront with a bar, eateries and shops.
She told police she forgot to pick it back up. When she realized it was missing a few moments later, she returned to the restroom but the gun was gone.
