A man has been charged in connection with the recovery of a shotgun.
Police searched a shed in Flintham Lane, Screveton, on 18 October 2022 and found the firearm and ammunition.
Following inquiries, a suspect was arrested on Sunday evening (8 January 2023).
John Watson, aged 35, of Spring Lane, Flintham, has since been charged with possession of a shotgun without holding a certificate under the Firearms Act 1968.
The 35-year-old was due to appear at Nottingham Magistrates’ Court this afternoon (Tuesday 10 January 2023).
Detective Inspector Simon Harrison, of Nottinghamshire Police, said: “Firearms offences are incredibly serious and we will always look to take action against anyone found to be in illegal possession of a gun.
“We treat such offences extremely seriously and we remain committed to taking weapons off the streets. Information is vital in doing this and I would urge anyone who suspects illegal firearms activity to contact the police as soon as possible on 101 or 999 in an emergency.”
