Last week Saanich police in The Capital Regional District discovered a rocket launcher in a recycling bin at the landfill, after it was reported by members of the staff.
“Their concern was that it may be usable,” said Sgt. Steve Eassie. “At this point it is inert, it is no longer housing what was once a rocket inside the missile launcher.”
Police believe that the “Guided Missile System, Intercept,”was used by the U.S. military in the 1960s or ‘70s. It was designed to be fired only once, according to police.
“It would’ve been used and disposed of. It was likely retrieved (after being fired) and kept by someone as a souvenir,” Eassie said.
“They could’ve disposed of it in a more appropriate manner,” Eassie said. “Should someone have equipment such as this in a collection at home, including other weapons that may have been rendered inoperable, the best course of action … is to contact the police department, and ask that they be surrendered for destruction.”
