Don't you just hate it when you forget something on the way to the bank?

Well, police charge Larry Wayne Porchia forgot something -- he forgot to leave his gun at home.

Authorities say a teller at a BancorpSouth branch in Camden, Ark., spotted Porchia's pistol in a sack of nickels.

The teller told a supervisor who then called police.
