WATCH: Person steals gun left in go-kart in Gulf Shores, police investigating

Baldwin County

GULF SHORES, Ala. (WKRG) — UPDATE (5/21): A spokesperson for the track told us Friday “The Track is a profanity, tobacco, vapor, drug, alcohol and weapon free facility. Guests who fail to obey these guidelines are asked to leave the property. We are working with local law enforcement on this incident.”

The Gulf Shores Police Department is working to identify to “young men” seen in this video.

Investigators say one of them found a firearm in a go-kart at The Track and did not tell anyone.

Surveillance video then shows him show the gun to someone else he’s with, who takes the firearm and walks away.

“Oh wow that’s crazy. Oh my goodness,” said Rayla Hearne, who we told the story to Thursday evening.

Police say the weapon lost was someone’s concealed carry firearm. Detectives are still reviewing the case, and Lt. Jason Woodruff said charges could come if something bad happens with that stolen gun.

According to The Track’s website, concealed weapons are not allowed on park property.

Anyone with information is asked to call Det. Mike Hoguet at 251-968-9841.
