Missing police magazine located

The Calgary Police Service has located the firearm magazine and 15 rounds of ammunition that fell from the duty belt of an on-duty police officer last Thursday.

Sometime between 3:30 p.m. and 5 p.m., on Thursday, April 28, 2016, one of the magazine carriers on the belt of an officer came open and a loaded magazine fell out. Officers immediately searched the areas where the magazine may have fallen out, but were unable to locate it. Police asked for the public’s help to find the lost item on Friday, April 29, 2016.

The magazine and all the ammunition were located the morning of Monday, May 2, 2016, in the District 8 office.

The Calgary Police Service would like to thank the public and media for helping in the search for this item. While the lost magazine posed minimal risk to the public without a firearm, police needed to ensure that it was secure and could not be used in the commission of a crime.
