City police officer loses taser cartridge

WINNIPEG -- City police are asking for the public’s help in locating a taser cartridge that became dislodged from an officer’s service belt on Sunday in St. James.

The taser itself was not lost but the cartridge contain probes on wires which extend when the device is discharged.

Police warn that the cartridge could pose a risk if it was picked up by an unsuspecting person and carried in a pocket.

"A build-up of static energy could activate the cartridge, causing the probes to be propelled," police said in a statement.

Anybody who finds the cartridge is asked to contact police at 986-6222.
