Port Moody Police have a mystery on their hands after a rusted-out gun on the weekend.
A couple of women were walking Saturday afternoon in the old Ioco Townsite on First Avenue and First Street when they came across what appeared to be an assault rifle similar to an AK-47.
Constable Luke van Winkel says it looked like it had been left out in the elements for sometime and could be decades old….
“It is rusted, it’s an area that’s undergoing some construction and updates so who knows when the bush was churned back to see this. These could have been bramble bushes six feet deep a year ago and have now been cleared away for some of the maintenance that’s been going on.”
Van Winkel says the forensics team is now taking a look at the weapon.
