7th June 2019
A man from Norfolk has admitted supplying firearms, following an investigation by the National CrimeAgency (NCA). Jurijs Ragozins, 44, from Kings Lynn was arrested after officers recovered 14 handguns, ammunition and 29 stun guns. He will be sentenced at Maidstone Crown Court next month (July).
Ragozins from Kings Lynn was arrested by officers from the NCA's Armed Operations Unit on All Saints Street in the town on the afternoon of Friday 26 April. Following his arrest, and searches in the Kings Lynn area 12 handguns, ammunition and 29 stun guns were recovered. Two further handguns had previously been recovered as part of the investigation.
NCA regional head of investigations Andrea Wilson said: "Removing these weapons from the criminal market will protect our communities from the harm they could have caused.
"I'd particularly like to thank our partners at Norfolk Police for their support and assistance throughout this operation."
