A Liverpool man has today, Monday 9 May, been jailed for seven years for possession of a firearm with intent to cause fear of violence and possession of prohibited firearm.
Saeed Ahmed, 40, of Wavertree, must also serve a further three years on licence after admitting the offences which took place in December last year.
Officers found two firearms at Wavertree Sports Park after carrying out a search following reports of shots being fired on Friday 17 December on Wellington Road.
Detective Inspector John Mullen said, “Vital information from the community helped us to uncover these weapons.
“I would like to thank the public and ask that they continue to be our eyes and ears so that we can take positive action and put people behind bars.
“Every weapon we recover is one less out there on the streets that could be used to cause fear, intimidation or harm.”
If you have got any information about the use or storage of weapons please DM @MerPolCC or @CrimestoppersUK on 0800 555 111.
