Missing Winnipeg Police Shotgun Found in River East Home

Winnipeg Police CrestA shotgun stolen from a Winnipeg police cruiser last May has been recovered, along with a number of other weapons.

In an unexpected discovery of the service weapon, police were called to a home in the area of Donald Drive on Monday for a child welfare matter.

While inside, police discovered one of the adults had an outstanding warrant and a search of the home was conducted.

The stolen shotgun, which was stolen from a marked cruiser on May 26, had since been modified.

Police no longer keep shotguns in their vehicles as of August 2014 and no other service firearms are currently missing.

A 30-year-old man and a 28-year-old woman have been charged with numerous firearm-related offences. They both remain in custody.
