Police gun left in cafe's toilet

"A police firearms officer left a gun in the toilets of a coffee shop where it was found by a member of the public, the Metropolitan Police (Met) has said.

The firearm was left in the toilets of a branch of Starbucks in Edgware Road in central London last Friday.

The female officer concerned has now been removed from operational duties while an investigation is carried out.

The pistol was eventually linked to her when police compared its serial number to those logged at a police armoury.

A Met Police spokesman said: "A police-issue firearm was left unattended in a central London cafe on 29 August and was found by a member of the public.

"The weapon belongs to a Metropolitan Police authorised firearms officer who was on duty at the time."

An investigation is being carried out by the force's Directorate of Professional Standards. "

Probably deliberately done to deflect flack from the top cops infighting at the met, either way being female she wont be punished it will be blamed on PMT, stress or the menopause, women eh?

So she lost her weapon and then.. what?

Didn't realise?
Didn't care?
Noticed but tried to cover it up?

Why exactly did they need to go through the books to find out who it had been signed out to? Surely this policeperson should have reported it missing?

She needs posting to somewhere dark dank and dismal and a long way away from any responsiblity.

Good thing the military are too astute to do anything like that!


Oh, hang on a minute. Didn't someone from the Chicksands posse do exactly the same thing in Tesco in Stevenage a few months ago?

Regardless of whether is Plod or Forces, thats seriously bad drills.

I was uner the impression that Police issue Firearms were secured in the ARV's safe until required and when worn on the officer, its secured with a coiled type of lanyard to the holster?

bit more here

... It belonged to a high-flying female officer in her 30s, it is claimed.

... A Scotland Yard spokesman said: "A police-issue firearm was left unattended in a central London cafe on August 29 and was found by a member of the public.

"The weapon belongs to a Metropolitan Police authorised firearms officer who was on duty at the time."

It is understood the gun was left in the coffee shop by mistake.
No kidding :roll:

Not for much longer methinks;

'Career fires, career fires, career stops!'

Or maybe all will be forgiven as it was her 'ooman right to leave a nine milly in the toilets if she so chose? :x

Hang on. Glock? Possible emotional problems? Crap attempt at a cover up?

It was BBR in a dress wasn’t it.

If she was one of the anointed ones it has been forgotten already.

So she left the bogs, got in the car, was protecting Tony B and at some point put her hand on her hip and thet "Oh shit" moment was felt. How hiddeous was that.

Used to Guard Tony Blair according to the mail

A female police firearms officer left a gun in a coffee shop where it was discovered by a member of the public, Scotland Yard said today.
The pistol was reportedly left in the toilets of a central London branch of Starbucks by a police bodyguard who was once Tony Blair's close protection officer.
The gun, a semi-automatic Glock 17, was left on the floor of the café's only toilet for 20 minutes.
The gun belonged to a high-flying female officer in her 30s.

She took off the belt holding the firearm when she used the toilet and then bought a coffee, forgetting she had left the gun behind.
The police source told The Sun: 'Luckily it was found in time, but if a child or a criminal had picked it up there could have been terrible consequences.


'This has come as a shock. The officer is inconsolable and seriously regrets her mistake.'
The source added: 'Everyone is fond of her.


Well thats ok then why all the fuss
She's upset and everyone is fond of her
Lets bin this thread and go and pick on someone else
