A police officer in suburban Schaumburg has been placed on leave for allegedly keeping a gun that had been turned in to the department last month.

A departmental investigation found that the officer took the .22 caliber revolver home with him and kept it without reporting it.

The case is under review by the Cook County State's Attorney's office.
