Poor Judgment = Make Work Project For Regional Police
Lethbridge: A report of a gun spotted on a vehicle dashboard in the downtown area just
before nine Wednesday night caused a flurry of anxious activity for Regional
Officers located the suspect vehicle in the 900-block of first avenue
south with four people inside. Multiple officers were quickly on-scene and used
a loud speaker to give verbal commands to the occupants.
The four, two 18-year old men, a 19-year old man and a 20-year old male, left the
vehicle when ordered. It turned out the gun was an air-soft pistol mistakenly
left in plan sight on the dashboard.
Since the piston was not pointed or used in a threatening way, the men were
not charged and were released with a warning.
