A firearms dealer has been charged with 24 offences linked to a large find of guns and ammunition at a former Suffolk parish council chairman’s home.
Anthony Buckland, 64, from Mill Road, Stoke Holy Cross, Norfolk, answered police bail this morning at the Bury St Edmunds Police Investigation Centre where he was charged with the offences.
Buckland is accused of selling/transferring a prohibited pistol, nine counts of fraud by false representation and possession of a prohibited weapon - a disguised firearm.
He is also charged with four counts of selling/transferring a firearm to a person who was not a firearm certificate holder and nine counts of selling/transferring a prohibited weapon.
Buckland’s arrest and charge follows the investigation into the discovery of a significant quantity of weapons at the home of James Arnold in Potash Road, Wyverstone in April.
Buckland will appear before Norwich Magistrates’ Court on December 5.
Mr Arnold, 49, died on July 14. He had been suffering from terminal cancer.
