RCMP Explain Their Possession Of High River Firearms

 
 

HIGH RIVER:  On Friday, High River RCMP released the following statement, regarding the collection of firearms in the community:

 

"During police operations in High River to locate and rescue any residents in need of assistance, the RCMP took possession of firearms that came across in plain view. All guns were tagged with the information required to ensure they can be returned to lawful owner. The firearms will be returned to their owners as soon as is practically possible.

 

During the search and rescue operation, the RCMP found that many gun owners had laid out their guns in plain view in order to move valuable possessions to higher ground in their homes. After confirming a home was vacant, police had no way of ensuring guns left unattended would remain secure.

 

“The last thing any gun owner wants is to have their guns fall into the wrong hands. Residents of High River can be assured that firearms now in possession of the RCMP are in safe hands, and will be returned to them as soon as is practically possible, “ said Assistant Commissioner Marianne Ryan, Criminal Operations “K” Division RCMP. “Gun owners will also be provided the option of having the RCMP keep the guns until they are able to store them safely.”

 

During the search and rescue operations, the RCMP seized a number of vehicles that were posing public safety hazards. This property will also be returned when operational demand allows".
