The Metropolitan Police have lost a Tazer and would like it back.
According to a plaintive plea, the people-zapper was lost in Lambeth yesterday morning when a dozy copper left it on the roof his car before driving off.
The device and four lethal cartridges haven't been seen since, despite increasingly desperate searches on behalf of the officer who has since been suspended.
Coppers from the Firearms Unit reckon the bright yellow, gun-shaped, occasionally lethal weapon was lost in or around Norfolk Row, Lambeth on yesterday morning between 0700hrs and 0830hrs.
They are asking for help in finding the thing.
If you or your children or pets or elderly relatives come across the device you are advised to call the plod on 0300 123 1212 and let them know.
