Four Arrests - Gun Recovered
Four men have been arrested in connection with a car chase in Milton Keynes, following which a firearm was recovered.
A red Citroen DS3 failed to stop for police on the V4 Watling Street at about 1.30am on Monday 15 July 2013, resulting in a short pursuit from the Fullers Slade area.
One man got out of the vehicle in the Loughton area and the vehicle was stopped in Tattenhoe Lane, Bletchley, about 10 minutes later.
Officers carried out a search of the local area, where a firearm and other items, including a quantity of controlled drugs, were recovered.
Four men, aged 18, 20, 24 and 25, have been arrested in connection with the incident and are now in custody.
Det Con Ian O’Bryne, of Force CID in Milton Keynes, said: “There are several scene watches in place at the moment, because searches need to be conducted to secure evidence and to carry out forensic investigations.
"Four men have been arrested and an investigation is under way to establish the full circumstances. Clearly the recovery of an illegal firearm and the fact it is now out of circulation is extremely positive, as such items pose a substantial threat to public safety.”
Police are appealing for any witnesses who may have seen the incident to contact Force CID in Milton Keynes via the 24-hour Enquiry Centre on 101.
If you don't want to speak directly to the police you can contact the independent charity Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111 or online at crimestoppers-uk.org. No personal details are taken, information is not traced or recorded and you will not go to court.
