I blame Michael Peeling of the Free-Holder for writing this STORY. All day I’m getting emails and phone calls asking why I haven’t linked to or written about it.
Frankly it’s the same reason I feel for CBSA officers in the bridge crisis. They’re stuck in the middle. I have a few friends in Law Enforcement; none locally; well maybe a couple locally; and I can tell you it’s not an easy job.
I have one friend who once had to protect a president of the United States and this president stood for everything that he wasn’t, but his job was to take a bullet if necessary. What a conundrum…..
I love using the word conundrum in a sentence too…..
Back to this story.
“A OPP officer’s gun and ammunition remains missing following the theft of a police vehicle Tuesday in Long Sault.
The unmarked OPP vehicle likely stolen sometime after midnight was found on Alice Street in Cornwall at 1 p.m. the same day, but the lockbox containing a gun, ammunition and other police equipment left in the truck was not.
The lockbox contained a 40-calibre Sig Sauer firearm, which was secured with three magazines of ammunition, handcuffs and pepper spray.”
First off Michael it should be “An OPP” as you always use “an” before a vowel. My next visual is from Casablanca when the Inspector shouts “Round up the usual suspects!” The vehicle was later found on Alice Street in the East End of Cornwall.
“If anyone has information about this theft, contact the nearest police agency, the OPP at 1-888-310-1122 or call Crime Stoppers at 613-534-4130 or 1-800-222-TIPS (8477).”
Any thoughts Cornwall?
