A Town of Galen man has been arrested for leaving handguns in an unattended vehicle. Nathan D. Rigby was charged following an investigation by the Wayne County Sheriff’s Office into a disturbance in Savannah in May.


Deputies responded to a call about shots fired by an intoxicated man near Route 39 and Allen Road. They found a pickup truck stuck in a ditch with the engine running and windows down. Inside the unoccupied truck, deputies discovered two handguns, one of which was loaded, and an open bottle of liquor.

Rigby was charged with improper storage of firearms and released on an appearance ticket for Savannah Town Court on July 25. The Sheriff’s Office has also referred Rigby’s concealed carry permit to County Court for review.
