It was a fairly routine day, we spent some time getting settled in with our new Sergeant. I took a handful of routine calls and worked on 2 reports to crown counsel for charge recommendations. I did assist one family with a firearms pickup. An elderly family member could no longer care for the firearms and no one else had a valid firearms license. I secured the firearms and lodged them for safekeeping for the time being so the family has one less thing to worry about in a difficult time.
The day started out with someone turning in a decent sized box of ammunition that was part of an estate. Some of the cartridges were quite old, hand loaded and showed signs of decomposition. This is a potential sign that the ammunition could be unstable and required special handling. I catalogued it and arranged for proper destruction.
