Firearms officers were called to an incident in St Helier after a distressed member of the public reported that someone was carrying what appeared to be a gun measuring three feet long.

The police seized the weapon after approaching the man at his home and explained the dangers that this may have caused.

According to the Jersey Firearms Law (2000), anyone who attempts to make any use of a firearm or imitation firearm with intent to resist or prevent the lawful arrest of himself, herself or any other person can be found guilty of an offence and liable to imprisonment and the incident has sparked concerns about people holding imitation weapons in public.
