Did you trip over a box of guns on your way to work this morning? If you did and resisted the overwhelming urge to rob a bank then please let MPS Tower Hamlets know as it seems they have lost a box of replica ornamental firearms.
It seems that officers attended the scene of a non-suspicious death in Mast House Terrace on the Isle of Dogs and found some a number of ornamental firearms which had been used as decorative items at the man’s home.
The firearms were checked and made safe at the scene while preparations were made to transport them to a local police station.
Unfortunately when the officers got back to the police station they were unable to locate one of the boxes of firearms – possibly containing six weapons.
The Met’s Directorate of Professional Standards was informed and the matter referred to the Independent Police Complaints Commission.
Anyone with information is asked to call officers at Tower Hamlets CID on 020 8217 3722, via Twitter @MetCC or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
