20-year-old Hannah Forkum was arrested Thursday on a multitude of charges, including auto theft. As Metro Nashville Police Officer Tony Minsing took her into custody, he says he searched her waistband, but not her upper back area. That mistake meant the Ruger LCP .380 she had strapped to the middle of her back wasn’t found, and he cuffed her hands directly below it and placed her into the patrol car for transport to DCSO for booking. When staff at the Sheriff’s office were processing her for booking they discovered the gun strapped to the middle of her back. In addition to her other charges, she now faces a felony charge of introducing a firearm into a penal institution. Disciplinary action is pending against Officer Tony Minsing.
