Jail for Fenland man who breached lifetime gun ban after replica weapons were found at his home

A MAN has been jailed for breaching his lifetime ban for owning guns after replica weapons were found at his Wisbech home.

Steven Fraser, 39, pleaded guilty to possessing an air weapon when prohibited for life and was sentenced to 18 months at Cambridge Crown Court.

Fraser, of Mill Road, West Walton, was arrested in October 2010 for alleged assault with the use of weapons before police searched two properties in the town and seized replica handguns and air weapons.

Fraser’s lifetime ban for owning guns resulted from a 42-month prison term in 1999.

Det Con Kayleigh O’Brien said: “Fraser was banned from owning firearms yet search teams discovered a number of air weapons and replica guns he had access to.

“He has an obsessive interest in weapons and was banned from owning them for good reason. People should be warned they face being locked up if they ignore such orders.”
