Two charged with Derby gun and drugs offences

Two people have been charged after a firearm and suspected class A drugs were recovered from a Derby house.

Police raided an address on Randolph Road in Pear Tree, on Tuesday evening and found a shotgun and a large amount of suspected cocaine and heroin.

A 23-year-old man and a 22-year-old woman were arrested and now charged with possession of a firearm and class A drugs with intent to supply.

They will appear before Derby magistrates later.

As part of the investigation into the firearm, police have also arrested a 21-year-old man from Derby. He is currently in custody.
