(CNS) – An investigation is being carried out by the Firearm Licensing Authority (FLA) following the discovery of a machine which is capable of manufacturing firearms.
It was found at a property in Manchester last week and it has been discovered that it was brought into the island without a permit from the FLA.
The machine was found while the FLA was conducting an investigation into a high volume of requests from eight individuals in Manchester for permits to purchase a large quantity of ammunition.
The requests, which were made last month, were for a total of 100,000 rounds.
It’s reported that the property where the gun making machine was found belongs to one of the individuals who the FLA was investigating.
