Police make second firearms arrest

Posted Tue 2nd March 2010 at 13:33

A second man has been arrested in connection with Alderney's missing firearms.

Guernsey Police today confirmed that a man was recently arrested, interviewed and bailed following last month's weapons raids.

Police searched three island properties on February 11 after the States realised several weapons were missing from the civil defence bunker, off Longis Road. One man was arrested during the operation but has since been released pending further enquiries.

About 30 firearms were seized during the raids, which involved officers from both Guernsey and Alderney. All the missing weapons were recovered and taken to Guernsey for analysis.

The Journal understands the searches were carried out after a member of the public asked for his seized weapons to be returned. However, after agreeing to return them, the States recognised they were missing.

In January members of the Policy and Finance Committee decided the States should continue dealing with licensing weapons and arrange seizures, rather than pass responsibility to the police.

Until the raids all Alderney's seized weapons were housed in the same area as Alderney Militia's.

A spokesman for the States declined to comment on the latest development and said the matter was being dealt with by police.
