Order knives online and face prosecution, warns officer
Main article content
Officers are warning people they will be prosecuted for importing illegal knives into the country.
Six parcels bound for homes in north Derbyshire have been intercepted in the last month. They contained flick knives ordered from various countries and were intercepted by customs staff before being delivered.
An investigation has been launched and the people who ordered the knives are being traced.
Another package was found to contain cocaine.
PC Ryan Gill, of the Chesterfield Crime Team, said: “We want people to know that ordering illegal knives is an offence. The package will be discovered, the police will be alerted and we will trace and prosecute you.”
