Feb 05 - Man Charged Following Friday’s Incident –Toy Gun Seized

A man has been charged following an incident on Friday afternoon which saw a sizeable deployment of RGP officers (including RGP and GDP armed officers) in the Westside area.

Lewis Quinn, 24, of Seawave House, Mid Harbour Estate, has been charged with one count of Fear or Provocation of Violence.

Following a series of coordinated searches and extensive enquiries that included the retrieval and analysing of CCTV footage, Quinn was identified and arrested that same evening. A search of his residence resulted in the seizure of a toy sub-machine gun.

Quinn will be appearing before the Magistrates’ Court tomorrow morning.

Gibraltar’s Threat Level remains at “Substantial,” with police operating at an increased level of response, including additional 24/7 patrols by Armed Officers as part of a series of wider security response measures. Whilst Gibraltar remains a generally safe jurisdiction, it remains exposed to similar security concerns applicable across cities worldwide, particularly in Europe.

The RGP is reminding the community of the potentially serious consequences that may arise as a result of anyone engaging in activity that involves the use of a toy or pellet-firing weapon (the latter being prohibited articles in law) that may cause alarm or distress to the general public.
