A stop check of a suspicious car led to the arrest of a man on firearms offences. 

Plain clothes officers were on patrol in Snodland yesterday when they approached a Ford Focus which had parked in Edward Close. 

Checks showed the driver was wanted in connection with a previous reported incident of possessing an imitation firearm.

When officers searched a nearby property they then recovered what was believed to be live ammunition in a container inside. 

The 27-year-old from Snodland was arrested on suspicion of possessing an imitation firearm and for possessing prohibited ammunition. 

He was later released, pending further investigation.
