Fake Gun Gets the Attention of Cobourg Police

In Police Blotter

Cobourg Police Service would like to confirm that the gun located by a resident in Rotary Park is a plastic BB gun and has been removed.

At approximately 9:40 a.m. this morning, police received a report from Municipal Law Enforcement that a resident found a gun in the area of Second Street and First Street in the Town of Cobourg.

Police attended and confirmed the gun was a plastic BB gun. The gun was seized by police and logged in property for destruction.

Cobourg Police remind the public that a fake gun is indistinguishable from a real gun, and there is often no way to tell if the weapon is real before an investigation.

Imitation guns can pose safety hazards and create fear and panic if located, displayed, or used in public places.

If it looks like a gun, it is treated like a gun by police.

Please consider the risks and responsibilities involved in owning any item that could be perceived as a real firearm.

If you come across a gun, always call the police.
