CS spray can lost in police chase
A canister of CS spray has gone missing after police chased a suspect through gardens in Edinburgh.
Officers had responded to a report of a disturbance at an address in the Prestonfield area of Edinburgh at about 14:30.
The canister became detached from an officer's belt while pursuing a suspect, Police Scotland said.
A search of the nearby streets and surrounding areas has since taken place but the can has not been recovered.
The force is now appealing for help from the public to find it.
Insp Stephen Rosie said: "The canister is approximately 12cm tall, grey in colour and is clearly marked. It is within a black plastic holder.
"CS spray is for police use only, utilised in very demanding circumstances to protect both the officer and the wider public.
"Anyone who comes across the canister should not in anyway attempt to use it and should contact us on 101 or bring it to your nearest police station."
A 23-year-old man was subsequently detained and later charged in connection with the disturbance.
