- Police on Friday were investigating what they called a bizarre incident following an overnight burglary at a Carol Stream doctor's office.
An officer responding to the burglary walked into an MRI room at the office on the 600 block of East St. Charles Road Friday morning, the building's owner said. The MRI machine's magnetism pulled away the officer's gun, which became stuck in the machine.
Because there is no way to turn off the magnetism, the gun remained in place and no one was allowed inside the building.
We understand these things aren't built with an "off" switch - they're hardwired into a power source and run pretty much until disabled by the installing company.
