Calgary Cop Caught Collecting Guns for Ca$h

"These are old guns we're dealing with, real nickle and dime shit"

The Harpoville Post reports that a Calgary cop with 18 years experence got caught with his fingers in the gun collective kitty reselling guns that were supposed to be distroyed. When a Calgary woman called the cops to pick up two guns she wanted distroyed, during that city's gun amnesty program the woman was suprised when the officers refused to take them. A week later one of the officers return, in plan clothes and offered to buy the guns off her for ten dollars. The woman declined the offer, the officer went away and then return and offered her twenty dollars and a business card from a gun dealer in Edmonton to prove the weapons were worthless. The woman then, after getting nothing but offers from the police, called the press.

The Harpoville Post has learned that Constable Dean Pankewicz wanted to buy the guns and then resell them to the Edmonton gun dealer for a profit of $250 each. The officer has been suspended, with pay, pending an investigation. Calgary police have collected 600 guns since the amnesty program began but it is not clear how many they have resold and put back on the street.
