Monroeville, Pennsylvania, police are searching for a handgun and TASER belonging to one of their officers after the items slid off his pickup truck on the drive home from work.
Police Chief Steven Pascarella said the officer placed his duty belt, with the items attached, on his truck as he changed in the police department parking lot for his drive home. Pascarella said the officer realized the belt was missing when he arrived home.
Pascarella said the belt contained a loaded Smith & Wesson .45-caliber handgun, TASER, flashlight, radio, and two loaded magazines.
The officer’s belt and some of the attached items were found along the route home, but the firearm and TASER are missing.
“We want them back for the sake of public safety,” Pascarella said.
