The Ticino Prosecutor’s office and the Canton police have opened investigations against a police officer. It should be come to “irregularities” in the management of seized items – including weapons, such as the Canton police writes.

The suspect police officer was reported by the own colleagues in the Prosecutor’s office. The authorities have requested the immediate suspension. The investigation is to clarify whether or not he stole seized property – so – called removal of seized property-or even misappropriated. (pma)
