A pair of firearms and ammunition were seized in Fife during an operation targeting organised crime.
Police Scotland and the National Crime Agency’s organised crime partnership executed warrants with local officers at two properties in Cook Street, Dysart, last Friday.
A 32-year-old man was remanded in custody after appearing at Kirkcaldy Sheriff Court on Tuesday on charges relating to the importation of weapons under the Firearms Act 1968.
The partnership works under the direction of the Lord Advocate and the Crown Office and Procurator Fiscal Service.
Detective Chief Inspector Graeme Naysmith, of the OCP, said: “The recovery of two further firearms and now 15 in total across Scotland since September 2018 shows the continued effectiveness of the OCP in tackling the importation and sale of prohibited weaponry.
“Working with our partners across the UK and abroad to proactively target those who attempt to jeopardise the safety of our communities will continue to be treated as a top priority.”
NCA Scotland operations manager John McGowan said: “Taking firearms off the streets makes those streets safer and results like this demonstrate the value of the NCA and Police Scotland working together.
“Organised crime represents a huge threat to our communities but through the OCP we are continuing to actively target those involved to protect the people of Scotland.”
