St Ives: Man Jailed For Having Shotgun
A man from St Ives who had a sawn-off shotgun at his home has been jailed for five years.
Armed officers were called to 45 year old James Brown's home in Hurstingstone on the evening of 29th October last year, to reports he had a firearm there.
They found a sawn-off shotgun [pictured - above right], wrapped in a towel inside a bag, along with 60 shotgun cartridges in his garage.
An improvised hook was attached to the gun, which experts believe could have been used to hide it under clothes.
Brown [pictured - below] admitted possessing a firearm and has been sentenced to five years in prison.
Detective Constable Mark Yendley said: "A sawn-off shotgun is a very dangerous weapon which is capable of causing horrific injury or death.
Thankfully the gun was not used to shoot anybody and a serious weapon has now been taken off the streets.
We will not tolerate the possession of such dangerous weapons and anyone who is caught faces a lengthy time behind bars."
