Victoria police seized what they described as a “realistic” replica submachine-gun-style firearm Wednesday afternoon after a resident reported spotting it in a shopping bag outside a multi-unit residential building.
The firearm was hung from a balcony at the building in the 100-block of Gorge Road East, in the Burnside Gorge neighbourhood. The firearm’s position made it accessible to someone who didn’t have direct access to the complex.
It was seized for destruction. No one has been arrested.
Call Victoria police at 250-995-7654, extension 1, or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477) with any information.
