Police are reminding people to remain vigilant and always report anything suspicious after a man was sentenced to five years’ imprisonment for a firearm offence in Suffolk.
It was last summer, when on the 28th July, Suffolk Constabulary and the Met’s Counter Terrorism Command, disrupted the illegal activities of Clinton Hicks of Normanshurst Close in Lowestoft.
Hicks was arrested at his home address for a firearms offence by Suffolk Constabulary in a pre-planned operation in which they recovered a ‘converted’ firearm and he was later charged.
During the search of the address by Suffolk officers, a quantity of various chemicals were also discovered. As a result, detectives from the Met’s Counter Terrorism Command were called to carry out further enquiries but no related offences were identified.
On the first day of his trial at Ipswich Crown Court in January, Hicks pleaded guilty to the charge of possession of a prohibited firearm - and last week he was sentenced to a total of five years imprisonment.
Superintendent Paul Sharp, Policing Commander for the Lowestoft area, said: "This incident last July caused a great deal of disruption for local residents in the area at the time so it is pleasing to see Hicks given this sentence. I once again thank those affected for their patience and understanding during the course of the incident whilst properties were evacuated and roads closed.”

Despite pleasant and sunny conditions for most of the Easter Bank Holiday weekend, many people heeded advice to stay away from our coastal and tourist locations.
However, Suffolk Constabulary continued to receive calls from members of the public reporting people ignoring the government restrictions to stay home and stay safe over the long weekend - and this included 158 calls on Easter Sunday.
On the same day, a total of 58 warnings were given by officers in the county to those in public or gathered at other addresses.
The message remains the same beyond the entire Easter weekend - that being for people to follow the Government advice on social distancing. Unless your travel is essential, the only plans you should be making are to stay home and stay safe in order to protect the NHS and save lives.
Suffolk Police have said that they will continue to engage, educate and encourage with members of the public. The more the public comply with the restrictions now the more lives will be saved.
