45 Year-Old Mark Rayner Jailed For 15 Years
Armed Police Raid Luton Homes
Armed police raided four homes in Luton today in connection with gun related crime in the town.
A 41-year-old man was arrested from an address in Lucerne Way, Luton for conspiracy to murder.
Other warrants were executed at a home in Argyll Avenue as well as two commercial premises in Leagrave Road and Selbourne Road, Luton.
Beds Police say it is the 46th arrest in relation to gun crime in the town since April. Searches at the property have been on-going throughout the day.
DCI Dave Quarmby, who is leading the Operation Boson investigation into gun crime in the town said: "Bedfordshire Police continues to investigate gun related crime and is relentless in its pursuit of those responsible. In order to turn these arrests into convictions however we need key witnesses to be brave and give us statements. Putting pen to paper could be the difference between locking people up behind bars and letting them go free to commit more crime. We have measures in place that can protect witnesses but we need to know who you are if we are to help you. Be brave and stand up against gun crime."
An 18-year-old man has been arrested on suspicion of murdering Leonne Weeks, 16, who was found dead on a path in Rotherham.
