The Mounties of Lac du Bonnet have recovered a gun stolen more than two years ago from the home of an RCMP officer in Winnipeg.
RCMP said they launched an investigation after reports of an armed man at a hotel in Lac du Bonnet.
On March 20, officers executed a search warrant and arrested a 35-year-old man. During the search, the police found a semi-automatic pistol.
Investigators say the gun is an RCMP-issued firearm that was reported stolen in 2019. The gun, along with a Taser, had been taken from a safe at an RCMP officer’s home in Winnipeg.
The suspect had outstanding arrest warrants for aggravated assault, threatening and failing to appear in court. He faces multiple charges related to weapons and remains behind bars.
All the allegations are yet to be proved in the court.
