Nanaimo RCMP say there is no upcoming battle between Optimus Prime and Megatron as they look for the owner of Transformers toys that were found on the side of the road on Tuesday.
The RCMP had a bit of fun Wednesday afternoon when they issued a release asking if anyone was missing their Transformers. The toys were found at the intersection of Fifth Street and Nanaimo Parkway.
“If you were driving by the intersection of Fifth St and the Nanaimo Parkway on Tuesday, September 12th at approximately 10:30 am, and saw dozens of Transformers lying on the side of the road, have no worries that a battle is looming between the honorable Optimus Prime and his evil arch enemy Megatron,” Const. Gary O’Brien of the Nanaimo RCMP wrote in a release.
“These powerful beasts appear to have simply fallen off the back of a truck and ended up scattered along the highway and throughout the intersection.”
A driver who was going north saw the Transformers and pulled over. They picked them up and brought them to the Nanaimo RCMP for safe keeping. Police have released a couple of photos of some of the items that were gathered.
Anyone who has information about the owner of the Transformers is asked to call Nanaimo RCMP at 250-754-2345.
