TRENTON, N.J. -

The Trenton police officer who was photographed for allegedly sleeping inside of his police car over the summer lost his gun in a police station parking lot.

The attorney who represents the officer says his client was "very upset" after he lost the weapon.

Officer Richard Takach left the gun somewhere on the side of his car or his bumper in the police station parking lot at Hermitage and Artison Monday morning at 3 a.m. just after his shift, his attorney Stuart Alterman said.

"When he realized he didn't have the weapon he immediately called his supervisor and turned around and drove to the secure parking lot where it occurred and searched for the weapon," Alterman told FOX 29.

Takach was suspended last summer without pay after he was photographed for allegedly sleeping in his police car where he was providing traffic control. His attorney says it was a last minute job after his client worked a 15-hour shift.

Alterman says his client was back on the job 24 hours later but is still waiting for a hearing on the matter.

As for the latest incident, Alterman says his client is upset over it, but took "all appropriate action."
