Gentile told police that his car door was locked both when he went into the restaurant and when he later returned to the car.

The pistol, valued at $600, was between the driver's seat and the radio console, and was slightly visible.

There were no signs of forced entry, no witnesses and no suspects, Baker said.

The offense was reported as an aggravated burglary because it involves a weapon, Baker said.
