A Hong Kong police officer left her gun in a shopping mall toilet at Tai Kok Tsui Saturday afternoon.
Police received a report around 4:50 pm that a pistol had been found in a women’s toilet stall at Metro Harbor Plaza, located near the West Kowloon Disciplined Services Quarters.
Initial investigation found that the gun belonged to a female police officer who reported her gun missing less than an hour ago.
Police arrived at the mall and sealed off the toilet, where they recovered the misplaced revolver.
A picture circulated online showed the handgun, left on what appears to be a toilet stall ledge, with the code “RHKP 3441.”
The Mong Kok district crime division is investigating the case. Police added that the management and use of gear are strictly regulated, and that violations will be seriously dealt with.
