Woman Carries Antique Shotgun Through Montrose

A woman carrying a shotgun through Montrose prompted locals to call Glendale Police.

A woman carrying a shotgun without a case through Montrose learned a valuable lesson, according to Glendale Police. 

The incident happened in the 3500 Block of Oceanview about 1 p.m. Thursday, said Glendale Police Lt. Scott Bickle.

"The lady took a shotgun to the antique store to be sold and someone called about a female with a gun. There was no crime, but she learned a valuable lesson about placing it in a case if she is going to be in public with it," Bickle said. 

The woman's name was not immediately available. 

In November 2011, a man pretending to make a Fed Ex delivery at a Montrose jewelry store pistol-whipped a store employee during an armed robbery, according to Glendale Police Department.

Well, that is a more acceptible reason than going to a shot gun wedding.
