    Family finds loaded 40-calibur gun under pillow at motel in Sugar Land | abc13.com
    Family finds gun under pillow at motel

    SUGAR LAND, TX (KTRK) -- A family staying at a Sugar Land motel got something unexpected at check in; grandma found a gun under a pillow.

    It happened at the Drury Inn on Southwest Freeway near Sugar Creek Boulevard. Family members are very upset about the discovery, some are even emotional, as they can't help but think about what could have happened.

    Brandy Frugia says everyone was settling in after checking in to the hotel, including their five- and nine-year-old daughters.

    "Playing in the room, jumping on the beds like kids would do," Frugia said.

    Just inches from the girls jumping around and playing with their games was a discovery that changed the tone of their stay.

    "A gun was hidden in the bed. How did it get there? I need answers," Frugia said.

    Brandy's mother, Laverne Perronne, was propping up her back with some pillows.

    "It felt like a gun. It was cold, and I slid it out and said, 'What is that?' And it was a gun," Perronne said.

    "I came into the room and there was my mom, sitting there in shock, and there was a gun," Frugia said.

    Perronne can't help but get emotional remembering how her granddaughters were playing beside her just minutes before.

    "It didn't, it didn't happen, it didn't happen. Thank God it didn't happen to us," Perronne said.

    Sugar Land police were called to the hotel and after looking over the gun, they determined it was a loaded 40-caliber handgun.

    Drury Inn Regional Manager Brian Collins said they learned the gun belongs to a previous guest who is registered as a handgun owner and when the staff went to prepare the room, it was overlooked.

    He also said they're reviewing procedures with staff at that location, notified the Corporate Safety and Security Department, apologized and will compensate the family.

    "Housekeeping should be more consistent in checking the rooms and the beds, and I hope nothing like this has to happen again," Frugia said.

    Sugar Land police say they still have possession of the gun, but they have no reason to open a criminal investigation at this time.
    "My God David, We're a Civilized society."

    "Sure, As long as the machines are workin' and you can call 911. But you take those things away, you throw people in the dark, and you scare the crap out of them; no more rules...You'll see how primitive they can get."

    Yeah... I really got to wonder about housekeeping. I hate hotels, and I will always pay the extra cash to stay in a nice place. I guess I'm not staying at any Drury Inns.

    I'm surprised it didn't happen at a Motel 6-Gun!

    Sixto,

    You might want to change your mind about Drury Inn's. They allow their guests with permit to carry concealed. Only exception would be when the alcohol is served in their lobby and in the state of Illinois. Me and my wife like the Drury very, very much.

    Gross....I can't stop thinking that housekeeping did not remake the bed! That's a major negative on the hotel in my book.

    That would piss me off almost as much as the gun. If housekeeping didn't find it, it's because they didn't change the linen when the last person checked out.

    As an airline pilot that spends between 10 and 12 nights per month in hotel rooms of various quality levels, let me tell you that you should ALWAYS double check your room for cleanliness and safety.

    Oh, the stories I could tell . . .

    Wish I'd have checked into that room. I could use a forty

    it may have been in the unused bed in the room...its not uncommon to get a room with 2 beds and only use one...i wouldnt expect housekeeping to turn the room upside down looking to see what might have been put under a pillow of a bed that was not used...

    lets be practical here...some idiot left a gun in the room and somehow the hotel is gonna take the heat for it...

    Hey - they can definitely do more to check their rooms. One night after a long day of flying, I luckily found a syringe and other nastiness hidden in a chair. And, it wasn't for insulin if you know what I'm saying . . .

    Its good the kids didnt find it first (assuming the kids do not know anything about LEAVING IT ALONE)

    - 10 for the owner of the gun

    -100 for housekeeping, people wonder why I ask for NEW SHEETS etc when I check into a hotel... If dont get them I LEAVE.
