The Calgary Police Service is trying to track down a bag of police equipment that was stolen from a truck earlier this week.

The truck belongs to a CPS recruit, who had her gear bag stolen from the 100 block of Skyview Point Rise NE at some point between 4 pm on Monday, May 7 and 7 am on Tuesday, May 8.

The bag was stolen from a 2015 Dodge Ram.

According to a release from the Calgary Police Service, the duty bag contained a set of soft body armour marked with “FTT” on the back, handcuffs and keys, and a locked case that contained a handgun and three 15-round magazines, though it is noted that no live ammunition was taken.

A duty belt, flashlight, and police baton were also stolen from the vehicle.

The weapon that was stolen was a non-functioning training gun given to recruits and is not available to anyone other than law enforcement. It is red below the slide, while the barrel is black.

Anyone with information on this weapon, or any of the other gear mentioned, is asked to contact the District 5 GIU Staff Seargent at 403-428-6500, the CPS non-emergency line at 403-266-1234, or anonymously through Crime Stoppers by calling 1-800-222-8477, or online through their website.
