SAN LUIS OBISPO, Calif. (KTLA/AP) -- The man who took a gun that a California police chief left in a restroom will not be charged by the district attorney’s office.

San Luis Obispo District Attorney Dan Dow said in a statement Saturday he will not pursue charges against 30-year-old Skeeter Carlos Mangan.

Police Chief Deanna Cantrell had left her personal handgun in a restaurant bathroom July 10. She was disciplined but kept her job.

Cantrell left her Glock .380 in an El Pollo Loco and quickly announced it was missing via a YouTube video.

Dow says Mangan could have been charged with a misdemeanor but decided a case would not be “in the interest of justice.”
