Here's an actual blast from the past.
Police said it also found drugs inside the vehicle, and that the man was a repeat offender.
It's a pretty regular crime story, except people can't seem to get over the gun. It looks like an antique from the Civil War, or something you'd keep next to your chamber pot.
And of course, the internet took it away with their hilarious comments. We really mean it.

Not to be outdone, the Baltimore Police Department also responded with their own comment. Don't you just love the internet?
