A Calgary police officer has been charged in relation to an investigation into alleged off-duty firearms offences.
In August of this year, police received information regarding the alleged sale of a shotgun to a person who did not have the required licence. It was also alleged that the newly acquired shotgun was not being stored properly.
A two-year member of the force has been charged with unauthorized possession of a firearm and contravention of storage regulations.
Police say the investigation stemmed from a domestic matter and to protect the welfare of the family involved, no names will be released.
The member, who is 26 years old, is currently on administrative leave.
