A Kimberley Mountie has pleaded guilty in a case of mishandled evidence.
Cst. Curtis Rasmussen was the subject of an RCMP investigation to determine the circumstances around the seizure of a firearm in October 2016.
Results were forwarded to Crown Counsel and Rasmussen was charged with four different counts.
On Monday, he entered a guilty plea in a Penticton courtroom to Possessing a Firearm without the Registration Certificate.
However, Crown Counsel requested the Judge stay the three other charges of Breach of Trust by an Officer, Theft, and Possessing a Weapon Obtained Through an Offence.
After last year’s offence, Rasmussen was suspended with pay.
His status with the Royal Mounted Canadian Police is unclear at this time.
