Torch-gun among weapons seized by police

A  Wythenshawe man is due to appear in court today after police swooped on a house in Sharston, uncovering  an arsenal of weapons.

Stuart Manners, aged 44, of Bronington Close in Sharston, Wythenshawe, is due to appear before Manchester magistrates today, Sept 6 2013, charged with conspiracy to possess a prohibited weapon, conspiracy to possess ammunition, conspiracy to possess a firearm with intent to endanger life, conspiracy to possess firearms which are disguised as other objects and conspiracy to possess any weapon designed or adapted for the discharge of any noxious liquid or gas.

Torches modified to fire bullets were among the weapons recovered by police.

Detectives from Titan –  the North West Regional Organised Crime Unit – also uncovered a cache of weapons including a self-loading pistol, stun gun and knives plus almost 100 rounds of ammunition.

A 37-year-old woman from Wythenshawe who was arrested yesterday has been released on police bail pending further enquiries.

Two 44-year-old men from Liverpool – Darren Marcell Alcock, of Livingston Drive, Aigburth and Paul Estridge of Sandon Street, Toxteth have also been charged with firearms offences following raids on Merseyside as part of the same operation.
