This is not April 1 and this not a joke. I repeat: you are not reading The Onion and this is not a joke. “Police are trying to find four rounds of police training ammunition which went missing while being taken from police headquarters to firearms training at Belmont in Brisbane’s south,” couriermail.com.au reports. Again: this is an actual news story. Here’s the rest . . .
The ammunition went missing at Coorparoo on September 20 while police were travelling to Belmont to conduct firearms training about 7am.
“The training ammunition is described as being approximately 3cm in length and a bronze and copper colour (see pictured),” a police statement said.
“The training ammunition is to be treated as a dangerous item if found and members of the public are urged not pick up or handle the training ammunition.
“Police are encouraging anyone who locates the training ammunition to call Policelink on 131 444.”
Funny or scary? Yes. Yes it is.
