On August 23,2018, members of the Massachusetts State Police (MSP) Dive Team assisted our Department with the recovery of a pistol which had been lost when a person’s canoe capsized on the Assabet River.
Concord Police Detective Kallie Koppenal returned the pistol to the owner. While conducting the search the MSP also located a wallet which contained a set of keys,
drivers license and military identification card.
Detective Kallie Koppenal was able to locate the owner Roy Carlson. He reported that he lost his wallet in the early 1970’s when his canoe tipped over. She returned his identification and keys to him. Although Carlson no longer has the car, he now has a great story.
