A 28-year-old man has been arrested after bouncers at a Bury St Edmunds nightclub found an airgun during a routine search.
Security staff at Flex nightclub in St Andrews Street found the air weapon during a routine door search shortly before 10.30pm on Saturday, November 6.
Police were called, and a man was arrested over suspicion of possession of a firearm.
He was taken to Bury St Edmunds Police Investigation Centre for questioning and has since been released on bail to answer on December 2.
Flex boss, Dominic Creffield said: "It was found in one of our searches because we were searching nearly everyone who came in.
"It's the first time we've found a weapon — we were shocked that it happens."
"Mostly we deal with drink, drugs and fake IDs."
