Officers from our Matrix team yesterday (3rd Dec) recovered a firearm whilst conducting an open land search around Spinney Woods in Stockbridge Village.
The 9mm pistol was found wrapped up in a black plastic bag & has now been forensically examined. Enquiries are ongoing to establish who the owner is & why the gun has ended up here.
We mustn't let guns or weapons fall into the wrong hands - If you know someone involved in gun crime, or any other serious violence, we want to know about it. Get in touch via @MerPolCC or contact Crimestoppers anonymously. #OpTarget
