Four arrested on gun charges

FOUR MEN have been arrested after a gun was found in a car in Heckmondwike on Tuesday afternoon.

Police were called just before 4pm to reports of a firearm inside a vehicle in the Walkley Lane area.

Armed officers stopped a VW Scirocco on the adjoining Walkley Avenue and arrested two men, aged 30 and 37, and the vehicle was seized.

Two more males in their 20s were arrested overnight in connection with the same incident. 

All were arrested on suspicion of possession of a firearm with intent to cause fear.

Walkley Avenue was cordoned off well into Wednesday morning as police investigated.

A spokesman for West Yorkshire Police said enquiries are ongoing. 

Anyone who witnessed anything or has any further information is asked to contact the police via 101 quoting log number 1233 of June 18, or information can be passed to Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
