Charges have been dropped against a 44-year-old who, along with another man, had been charged with possessing a firearm with intent to cause fear of violence in a residential street in Greenhithe.
Paul Killick, 44, of Blackfen Road, Sidcup, and Tommy Killick, 22, of no fixed address, were both charged with the offence after police were called to the Palladian Circus area on the afternoon of Friday, March 31.
Members of the public had reported seeing a firearm in Liverymen Walk and dialled 999.
Police confirmed at the time “a gas-powered weapon” was recovered from a vehicle in Liverymen Walk.
Tommy entered a guilty plea at Woolwich Crown Court last Wednesday and Paul, who pleaded not guilty, was due to stand trial this week.
However, when he appeared at the court on Wednesday the Crown Prosecution Service offered no evidence and his case will be taken no further.
Tommy is due to be sentenced at the same court on Friday, September 29.
