Police have arrested and charged a Speke man in possession of a firearm and ammunition after forensic enquiries into a recovery from July, 2017.

On Tuesday, 11 July, officers carried out a warrant on an address in Dam Wood Road. At the address, a large cannabis farm (around 250 plants) and a loaded 357 Magnum with ammunition were found and seized. The investigation into the cannabis farm continues.

Following forensic enquiries, 26-year-old Carl Pendleton from Dam Wood Road in Speke was arrested and charged with possessing a firearm and ammunition and has been kept in custody to appear this morning, Thursday 7 September.

Superintendent Mark Wiggins said: “This action was part of the forces robust stance against gun crime. We are working hard with our partner agencies to target these individuals who believe it is acceptable to get involved in gun crime or serious and organised crime.

“We act on all information provided by the community in relation to both these issues and I would ask people continue to provide us with information so we can continue to take action. Removing this firearm really reduces risk in the area.”

Anyone with information where guns are being stored is asked to call our gun crime hotline on 0800 230 0600. You can also call the independent charity Crimestoppers anonymously and for free on 0800 555 111
