November 10, 2018
Someone found ammunition on a road in Old Town in early November, the Park City Police Department said, indicating there was initial worry that a gun might be missing as well.
The Police Department received the report at a little bit before 12:30 p.m. on Park Avenue close to the King Road intersection. Phil Kirk, a police captain, said someone ran over the ammunition magazine and stopped to investigate. Kirk said it is a magazine manufactured by Ruger. He said the magazine contained 15 .22-caliber bullets made for a pistol.
Police officers who responded did not find a gun in the vicinity of the ammunition magazine. Kirk said the ammunition created "very minimal hazard."
"We were more concerned about the actual firearm," Kirk said.
The Police Department booked the ammunition into evidence.
He said .22-caliber guns are "very economical, very small caliber."
