HGV driver carrying ‘stun gun’ jailed

An HGV driver found in possession of a stun gun and pepper spray, which he claimed was for his protection after illegal immigrants broke his arm during an attack in France, has been jailed for 18 months.

The High Court in Glasgow heard that the stun gun and pepper spray were found during a routine search of Graeme McMurray’s lorry at the P&O Ferry Terminal in Cairnryan, on November 5, 2019.

The court was told that Graeme McMurray, from Denny, had bought the weapon for £15 on the internet and received a free pepper spray with his purchase.

In court, McMurray admitted possessing the stun gun and the pepper spray illegally.
