Gun used to launch non-lethal gas or blunt rounds may have fallen from officer's truck Sunday

The gun is designed to launch things from a distance, including irritant gas or a 'less lethal blunt impact round,' said RCMP.

The gun is designed to launch things from a distance, including irritant gas or a 'less lethal blunt impact round,' said RCMP.

RCMP are thanking the public after recovering a lost gun and ammunition that may have fallen from an officer's truck Sunday near the Golden Ears Bridge.

They were looking for a 40MM Abrams Airborne Mfg Inc. Less Lethal Multi-Launcher, which a release calls a "gas gun," along with a green camouflage bag containing ammunition.

The gun and ammunition went missing Sunday, and the B.C. RCMP said in a statement it believed they fell out of "the insecure back hatch of a truck canopy," shortly before 7:30 a.m. PT on Sunday.

By 5:30 p.m. PT on Monday, it had been returned. 

"As a result of media coverage, a member of the public immediately called the RCMP to report they recovered the equipment in the area it was believed to have gone missing," said the RCMP in a statement. 

"Officers have connected with them and confirmed that all missing items have accounted for."


Ammunition including 'barricade penetrating projectile liquid' was lost Sunday from a truck driven by a member of the RCMP's Emergency Response Team. (RCMP)

The truck was being driven by a member of the Integrated Emergency Response Team, a highly-trained group of weapons experts who respond to hostage situations, serious crime arrests and even close-quarter combat.

A passing motorist told the driver about the open latch.

An investigation into how the gun and ammunition went missing in the first place is continuing.
