EVANSVILLE, Ind. A custodian at a southwestern Indiana middle school has resigned two days after he says he inadvertently brought a loaded handgun into the school.

Jordan Stone said Friday in a statement announcing his resignation that it "was an honest mistake" when he brought the gun Wednesday into Thompkins Middle School.

The Evansville Courier & Press reports the 24-year-old Stone put the weapon in a locked room in the Evansville school after realizing he had it with him.

School officials and police were alerted after another school employee found the gun hours later in the school's boiler room.

Evansville Vanderburgh School Corp. spokeswoman Marsha Jackson says the boiler room is always kept locked and inaccessible to the public.

Stone wasn't arrested, but he could face potentially face criminal charges.
