Following the theft, the RCMP officer responsible for the firearm was placed on administrative duties and an internal RCMP Code of Conduct investigation was initiated. As a result of the conduct investigation, corrective measures were imposed on the officer.

 

Since then, the officer has returned to operational duties.

 

The Saskatoon Police Service also investigated the circumstances surrounding the storage of the firearm and laid charges against the officer.

 

RCMP Constable Shannon Drall was charged with Unsafe Storage of a Restricted Firearm contravening Section 6 of the Storage, Display, Transportation and Handling of Firearms by Individuals Regulations, contrary to Section 86(2) of the Canadian Criminal Code.

 

Constable Drall will appear in the Saskatoon Provincial Court on July 17, 2019 at 2 p.m.
