Halifax Regional Police say a police-issued firearm magazine, along with ammunition, that was missing over the weekend has been found.

According to police, the magazine was reported missing Friday night “after getting detached from an officer’s duty belt during the course of their duties.”

HRP have not said where the incident occurred. In a statement to Global News, a spokesperson says it was lost in an outdoor location within their jurisdiction, but they were not asking the public to look for it.

“Police remind members of the public that possession of police-issued equipment by the public is prohibited by law,” read a release.

“Additionally, Nova Scotia’s Police Identity Management Act carries penalties for unlawful possession of police articles.”

On Monday, HRP said officers who had been continuing to search for the magazine found it in the same area it was lost.
