Prescott Valley's Police Chief Bryan Jarrell is now offering a reward for the person who helps him find his gun.

Nearly two weeks after Chief Jarrell accidentally left his department issued handgun in his town library, the department has announced a $500 reward for its safe return.

Sergeant Jerry Ferguson said it's easy to identify the gun, now registered with the National Crime Information Center.

"The handgun is described as a Glock 19, a nine millimeter caliber and black in color, serial number YHC 944," Ferguson said.

The serial number makes it harder to sell, but the department is making it easy to anonymously report it to Yavapai County's Silent Witness line.

"Callers will not be required to identify themselves, nor is caller ID used," Ferguson said. "All steps to provide anonymity to the caller will be taken."

The police chief lost the gun back on Nov. 9 as he changed clothes in the library bathroom following a town council meeting. He did not notice it was missing until several days later.
