    Guns and ammunition found in lorry arriving at Dover (UK)

    I often answer questions on the forum about why is gun crime so high in the UK when self-loading pistols were banned in 1997? ....Thought you would like to read this and find out where they are coming from.

    Eight hand guns and 200 rounds of ammunition were found by customs officers hidden inside a lorry arriving at Dover.


    The discovery, which also included 9,600 cigarettes, was made by UK Border Agency (UKBA) officers searching a vehicle which arrived at the port on a ferry from Calais on Tuesday (10 November).

    Lithuanian national Vitalijus Tauskela, 48, was arrested and subsequently charged with attempted smuggling.

    Tauskela, appeared at Folkestone Magistrates' Court on Wednesday (November 11) and was remanded in custody to appear at Dover Magistrates' Court on December 10.

    Malcolm Bragg, HM Revenue and Customs' assistant director of criminal investigation, said: "HMRC investigators and their UK Border Agency colleagues are determined to stop weapons and any other smuggled goods reaching the UK's streets."

    Now that is a long title right there.

    So, Bob, what you are reporting is that criminals in the UK follow laws as well as those here in the States?
