Plymouth Police Captain John Rogers has been punished for losing his department issued gun in the bathroom of the Wareham District Court. Rogers will be suspended for 20 days without pay and will have to work for no pay for another 10 days. He will not face any criminal weapons charges.
Rogers recently left his gun in the men’s room of the Wareham District Court. When he went to retrieve it the gun was gone. That caused a lock down in the court. The gun was eventually found two day later. Plymouth police did not issue any details in the recovery of the gun.
Rogers has been a member of the Plymouth Police Department for 28 years and this is the first time he has been disciplined. The fact that Rogers is a high ranking officer is one the factors in his lengthy suspension.
