Friday, November 22, 2019, at 9 h 50 the controllers of a train towards Montpellier contacted the National Police of Le Mans. Because they found a rifle and ammunition and the owner does not show up.
At around 9:50 am on Friday, November 22, 2019, train controllers from Rennes and towards Montpellier were stopped by a strange cover in the baggage compartment of the train.
Inside, a shotgun and in a second cover, ammunition of twelve caliber. In search of the owner who does not appear, the controllers contact the National Police of Le Mans since the train enters the station of the city.
It is only when the police arrive that the owner reacts: he does not understand why his shotgun disturbs, he has his license. A proceeding is open which could end with a contravention.
Recall that the decree of 22 March 1942 Article 77-1 relating to the transport of hunting weapons in a train prohibits the entry of tracks and trains to people carrying a loaded weapon, and whose packaging is not sufficient.
