Shotgun cartridges found in Bootle

MERSEYSIDE Police have confirmed that shotgun cartridges have been found in Bootle, on Wednesday, 22 March 2017. Officers discovered a bag containing live shotgun cartridges while searching an area of the old cemetery on Irlam Road and Church Green this morning.  Officers from the Matrix Serious and Organised Crime Team found the ammunition, which has been recovered for forensic examination.

Chief Inspector Clare Jenkins said:- "We searched this area following information provided by the community. This recovery means there is less ammunition on our streets that could be used to cause fear, harm or even worse in our communities. The force is relentless in its pursuit of those involved in gun crime and will continue to carry out searches such as these to make our streets safer. Officers searched this area after receiving Information from the community, which again proves how vital the public can be in our fight against gun crime. This discovery has been brought about through continued work with the community as part of our on going pursuit to reduce firearms possession and discharges across Merseyside. The ammunition will be taken away and examined by crime scene investigators. I'd urge anyone who has any information about firearms in their community, to get in contact with officers from the Matrix Serious and Organised Crime gun crime hotline on:- 0800 230 0600 or Crimestoppers anonymously on:- 0800 555 111."
