When RCMP officers get a weapons complaint, they will take it seriously.
Case in point: Friday, Sept. 11, just before 5:30 p.m. Officers from the Vernon-North Okanagan detachment responded to a weapons complaint in the area of Polson Park.
“The witness advised an individual in a group was seen with a firearm,” said Vernon-North Okanagan RCMP media relations officer Const. Chris Terleski. “Police located a group of individuals matching the description.”
After a search, police located an airsoft pistol which they confiscated from the group.
