Cop fined for leaving gun in loo

A Swedish police officer who left her hand gun in a public loo when she went to spend a penny has been fined £700.

Inspector Emelie Berglund, 32, from Kalmar, had unstrapped her weapon as she took a break from giving evidence at the city’s district court.

An honest janitor found the gun and returned it to her but a colleague reported her to superiors and she was disciplined with the £700 fine.

“By failing to keep control of your weapon, with the consequence that it was left behind in the toilets, you have displayed insufficient care,” the police tribunal judge ruled.
