An RCMP gas gun that fell off a police truck near Golden Ears bridge has been turned in by a member of the public.

“As a result of media coverage, a member of the public immediately called the RCMP to report they recovered the equipment in the area it was believed to have gone missing,” an RCMP statement said.

“Officers have connected with them and confirmed that all missing items have accounted for.”

The force issued a public call for assistance yesterday in locating the 40MM Abrams Airborne Mfg Inc. Less Lethal Multi-Launcher (gas gun) and a large green case containing related ammunition.

It is believed that the items fell through the insecure back hatch of a truck canopy on July 23 shortly before 7:30 a.m. in the area of the Golden Ears Bridge.

The driver of the truck, a member of the Integrated Emergency Response Team, was alerted to the open latch by a passing motorist.

The police officer stopped to check the content of the truck and noticed a green camouflage bag containing the multi-launcher missing.

A review of the incident is being conducted, the police statement said.
