The Kimberley Mountie who pleaded guilty to possessing a firearm without proper certification remains suspended with pay.
A spokesperson with the RCMP confirmed to The Drive newsroom Cst. Curtis Rasmussen remains on the force.
Rasmussen was the subject of an investigation into an alleged mishandling and theft of evidence in October 2016.
Initially, he faced four different charges.
However, this week in a Penticton courtroom, Crown Counsel directed a stay of proceedings on the three other counts of breach of trust, theft and possession a firearm obtained by an offence.
The RCMP would not comment on the length of Rasmussen’s suspension or if he is facing any further punishment.
They did say his status is the subject of continual assessment.
After it was announced Rasmussen was the subject of a criminal investigation, it was also revealed the constable was also facing an RCMP internal investigation.
The RCMP would not comment on the results of the second investigation either.
