Two men have appeared in court after police discovered handguns and ammunition in a van.
Officers stopped the vehicle near Measham, Leicestershire, on Wednesday (23 August) afternoon and recovered four weapons, each with a silencer and multiple rounds of ammunition.
A 43-year-old man arrested at the scene on suspicion of possessing a firearm with intent to endanger life and possessing Class B drugs with intent to supply.
He was later released on conditional police bail.
Two other men have since been charged with possession of a firearm and possession of ammunition without a certificate.
Both men appeared at Nottingham Magistrates’ Court on Friday and were remanded into custody.
They are due to appear at Nottingham Crown Court on 22 September.
Two other firearms and parts of another firearm were also recovered during related police searches.
