Two sub-machine, 9mm guns seized
TWO SUB-MACHINE GUNS and a 9 mm automatic were seized by police in an operation in The City yesterday.
The illegal weapons were found after detectives executed a search warrant at a house in Nelson Street. An individual is in custody assisting with investigations.
The seizure brought to four the number of illegal guns confiscated this week.
In the first seizure, police held and searched an individual, who was a person of interest, and a .22 automatic was found on him.
Investigations are continuing in both incidents.
Commenting on the discovery of the guns, police public relations officer Inspector David Welch said the force viewed the discovery of such weapons with concern.
Noting that the force seized more than 70 illegal guns last year, Welch said they would continue to follow every credible lead to rid the streets of illegal firearms.
