Child Finds Live Bullet In Northampton
A youngster in Northampton's found a live bullet and police are asking parents in the area to speak to their children if they were playing in the same area.
The appeal comes after a bullet was handed to a police officer by a woman whose grandson found it near to the Bushland Road Co-Op on Thursday, 17th March.
The youngster had been playing with other children and it is believed they may also have taken bullets home.
Sergeant Wyn Hughes, said:
"We have checked the bullet that was handed in to us and it is live, which means it is likely that any other bullets taken home by other children will also be live.
We are making enquiries to identify the other children who were in Bushland Road on Thursday, as well as conducting patrols in the area.
I want any parent or guardian who has a child who was in Bushland Road on Thursday to speak to them and ask if they saw any bullets, or if they took any home.
Live ammunition can be incredibly dangerous and anyone who finds a bullet should call 101 to report it to us, so we can make arrangements to collect it."
Police officers would also like to speak to anyone who may have any information about the bullets. Anyone with information can call police on 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
