Newry Car Salesman Gets Six Years For Gun Possession

A Newry car salesman caught at an arms hide with two guns and ammunition has been sent to prison.

Michael Gerald Drummond, of Orior Park, Bessbrook was tracked to the hide in March 2019 during an aerial police operation.

He admitted ten charges, including possessing loaded Glock and Colt pistols in suspicious circumstances without a firearms license.

Handing down the six-year sentence, the judge told Drummond he will serve half the term in custody followed by supervised licenced parole.
