A STARTLED man has told how he found a bullet lying in a York city-centre street.
Tim Stark said he was unloading items into the MOR Music store where he works in Fossgate yesterday morning when he spotted what he believed to be a live .22 bullet gleaming in a puddle.
He said he immediately called police, who came and took it away.
I have no idea what it was doing there, he said.
A North Yorkshire Police spokesman said the bullet had been put into safe storage, and CID had confirmed it was not thought to be connected with any incident currently under investigation.
He asked anyone with any information about the bullet and how it came to be in Fossgate to phone the force on 0845 60 60 47.
Still funny after all this time............
And to think I TOUCHED that nasty live shotgun shell I found lying in the Walmart parking lot during duck season and didn’t bother the cop parked 70 feet from me.
Someone please nuke Britain and put those idiots out of their misery.
She said they were!..............
Yes, they are kind of like pennies. You keep a bunch in your pocket and every now and then one gets dropped on the ground.
I bet they would sound the emergency sirens, declare martial law, bring out the tanks if a person left a brick (500 rounds)lying around.
I bet they called a SWAT team, a bomb disposal specialist or a robot to pick it up.
Or to really muck them up and to create a national furor, mail them out in a couple thousand envelopes, or tape one to a small helium balloon, let go with a couple thousand balloons upwind.
A friggin nation of lambs with all its neighbors building slaughterhouses.
I have a 20mm round on my shelf here in my office.
The press and the lady called them bullets. Who are you going to believe? (/sarcasm)
Where do we get such men?
Did they put the military on high alert?
From the UK.
My best guess.
Someone dropped it.
Canz I beez a detective now ?
They deserve to pay over $9 a gallon for gas.
Cordon off the block and call EOD!
“.22 bullet found in Fossgate, York”
OMG! That poor man. I hope he’ll be ok.
The once proud Brits have become the wussey laughing stock of the world.
Egad! Looks to be from a Remington "golden bullet" bulk pack, which means there are around 499 more of those evil, nasty things strewn about. < rolls eyes >
Roger the Shrubber was absolutely right - there *is* a pestilence upon that land.
This past weekend, I was teaching my wife on the handling and loading techniques to be used on my rifle. I made the mistake of holding up a cartridge and pointing out the "shooty end" versus the "non-shooty" end. She was not amused and the look she gave me indicated that she did not need a rifle to kill anything that was within 10 paces of her.
