New details regarding the origin of the stray ammunition on the sets of Rust have been brought to light in a newly released statement by police.

The report focuses on determining how the ammunition made its way to the set in the first place.

According to Fox News, Armorer Hannah Gutierrez Reed sourced her ammunition supply from Seth Kenney.

In his interview with police officials, Kenny revealed that “a couple of years back" he had received "reloaded ammunition" with the same logo and dummy rounds as he’d brought to set.

The statement forwarded via the search warrant reveals, "Seth described how a couple of years back, he received ‘reloaded ammunition from a friend.”

"Seth described the ammunition stuck out to him due to the suspected live round to have a cartridge with the Starline Brass logo on it.”

“Seth described the logo to be a star, an arch, and then another star. He described how the company only sells components of ammunition, and not live ammunition, therefore it had to be a reloaded round."
