Well, That's Disturbing

West Anklam Road

Aug. 12, 8:46 a.m.

In what was likely one of the UA's more unsettling "found property" cases (which usually involve a lost ID or cell phone), someone turned in a fully loaded gun magazine discovered near Tucson's most beloved site for desert walks, a University of Arizona Police Department report stated.

Two UAPD officers were flagged down on Anklam Road by a nearby resident, who said he'd found "a gun magazine with live ammunition in it" by a gate to the pedestrian path up Tumamoc Hill. The officers identified it as a chrome seven-round magazine for a Springfield Armory XD-S handgun, filled with seven Hornady brand .40-calliber bullets.

The magazine was secured in a property-and-evidence locker. Its owner hadn't been identified at the time of the report.

    When hipsters do something that's slightly outside the law yet an innovation over the old guard, they get a Series-C round of funding, Instagram influencers, and fawning media coverage. When Mexicans do it? We get code enforcement.
