A man has been charged in connection with the alleged importation of firearms after a weapons haul was seized during a raid on a Glasgow house.
An investigation was launched after a disguised stun gun was discovered by Border Force officers carrying out checks on incoming mail.
Officers from the National Crime Agency (NCA) and Police Scotland’s Organised Crime Partnership (OCP) joined forces to execute a search warrant on a property in Bishopsgate Gardens, Colston, on Tuesday morning.
A further two stun guns and three other weapons were recovered and have now been sent away for forensic analysis.
A 53-year-old man was arrested and charged in connection with alleged importation of firearms offences, and is due to appear at Glasgow Sheriff Court on July 8.
The NCA’s John McGowan, operations manager for the OCP, said: “Today’s operation has seen a number of dangerous weapons taken out of circulation, and demonstrates our ongoing determination to protect the people of Scotland.
“The Organised Crime Partnership will continue to work with partners like Border Force to do just that.”
