A shotgun has been recovered after it was found in a garden in Liverpool.
At around 2.05pm on Thursday 10 February we received a report that a sawn-off shotgun and ammunition were found wrapped in a plastic bag in a garden of a property on Altcross Road, Croxteth.
The weapon has been made safe and forensically recovered.
Enquiries are currently being carried out.
Detective Chief Inspector Rachel Wilson from the Firearms Investigation Team said: “This is an important recovery as it means that there is one less weapon on our streets which could have been used to cause fear and intimidation in our communities.
“We rely on community intelligence to discover where weapons are being stored and who is using them and I would ask that the public continue to be our eyes and ears.”
If you have got any information about the use or storage of weapons please DM @MerPolCC or @CrimestoppersUK on 0800 555 111.
