Police arrested a 43-year-old man in Rocklands on Wednesday last week at 23:45.

Officers were on patrol in Arabian Street when they spotted a white Ford Courier van with two men and a woman inside.

The driver began to speed off as the police approached.

One of the passengers was seen throwing an item out of the car and officers managed to catch the suspects and went back to the spot where the item had been dropped.

Officers found a silver 9mm pistol with a black handle. The serial number had been filed off and the gun contained a magazine with four live rounds of ­ammunition.
