Lee Rogers, formerly of Lacey Street, Ipswich, had his case sent to the town’s crown court after making his first appearance on three charges before South East Suffolk Magistrates’ Court.

The 34-year-old, who is now living with his mother in east London, is alleged to have committed the offences on July 17.

Rogers is charged with possessing a prohibited firearm of length less than 30cms/60cms. The length of the barrels is said to be 28cms
