A drug dealer from Peterborough who hid four guns in his garden has been jailed.

Police found three handguns, one of which was loaded, a revolver, and ammunition wrapped in a bag in a drain underneath children’s play equipment at the home of 36-year-old Wojciech Sztulc.

Around one and a half kilograms of cocaine, along with more than £28,000 in cash, was also found in Sztulc’s car.

Sztulc pleaded guilty to a number of offences including possession of four firearms and conspiracy to supply Class A and Class B, and has been jailed for 14 and a half years.

Detective Inspector James Panter said: “Not only did Sztulc have a significant monopoly on the drugs market within Peterborough, with drugs worth more than £30,000 found in his car alone, the guns found also indicated he was involved in the illegal firearms trade."
