UPDATE: The Missing Taser Was Located within the West District Station.
Winnipeg Police are looking for help from the public after a taser and cartridges went missing in the North End.
It went missing during the daytime Saturday, somehow dislodging from the service belt of a uniformed officer.
The taser cartridge contains probes on wires which extend when discharged from the device.
Police warn the taser with cartridges could pose a risk if it was picked up and carried in a pocket. A build-up of static energy could activate the cartridges.
Members of the public are asked to contact police immediately should the Taser with cartridge be located.
