Saturday, 2 April 2022

South Yorkshire Police

The pair were spotted carrying the air weapon by officers from South Yorkshire Police’s Off Road Team.

A spokesman said: “We happened across two lads in a nature reserve with an air rifle.

"We cant comment further as its a live investigation but fair to say you cant stroll about with a gun of any kind out in public like this.

"This one falls under trespass with an air weapon and can carry a hefty punishment, three months prison and £2,500 fine.

“Hope we saved the local wildlife in the nature reserve some pain and misery by seizing the gun.”
