Imitation firearm arrest



Have your say

A 23-year-old man with an imitation firearm was arrested for ‘intent to cause fear’ after a concerned member of the public saw him in Vestry Close on Monday (July 21) afternoon.

Detective Constable Colin Knight, who appealed for witnesses, said: “We will not tolerate this type of offence. It not only causes fear but those who carry imitation firearms also put themselves at risk as armed officers who respond to this type of emergency will not know if the firearm is real or not.”
