Men charged after guns found in Wolverhampton armed police swoop
Four men have been charged with firearms offences after an armed police swoop in Wolverhampton.
The men were arrested on Friday during a major police operation in Dunstall Hill and The Scotlands estate.
Bricklayer Leon Facey, student Jamie Hall-Reid and roofer David Anthony Price were detained when police stopped two cars outside Halfords in Fox's Lane. Officers said revolvers were found in both the vehicles.
Later Lee Anthony Russell, who is unemployed, was arrested at his home on Keats Road.
The four men were interrogated by police on Saturday and have now all been charged.
Facey, aged 30 and of North Street, Walsall; Hall-Reid, 29, of Ardgowan Grove, Parkfields, Wolverhampton; and Price, 29, of Genge Avenue, Lanesfield, Wolverhampton have all been charged with possession of a firearm and ammunition.
Price was also charged with possession of a Class A drug.
Meanwhile 30-year-old Russell has been charged with firearms offences around the supply of a firearm and ammunition.
Footage posted on social media showed several unmarked police cars at Halfords near the Five Ways Roundabout as plain-clothed officers detained three of the suspects at around 6.30pm.
Later neighbours watched on as police armed with semi-automatic rifles filled Keats Road in The Scotlands while Russell was arrested.
All four men have been remanded to appear at Wolverhampton Magistrates Court on Monday.
