Action needed on theft of legally held firearms - McMullan

2 September, 2016 - by Oliver McMullan


Sinn Féin MLA Oliver McMullan has called on the PSNI to take action against the theft of legally held firearms. 

The East Antrim MLA said; 

"There appears to be a growing trend of thefts of legally held firearms which is very worrying. 

"I am aware of several incidents in East Antrim in recent weeks that have been reported to the PSNI. 

"We need to know how many guns have been stolen and whether any have subsequently been used in crimes or been recovered. 

"I will be contacting the PSNI to discuss how they are responding to this and what action they are taking to combat it."
