A MAN has been charged with firearms offences after a Bockleton property was searched.

The search was conducted on Wednesday, August 17, after which Kristopher Bloomfield was arrested.

The 22-year-old has been charged with possessing a firearm and ammunition for one without a certificate.

He was also charged with having an explosive substance for unlawful purposes and having an offensive weapon in a private place.

Bloomfield is due to appear at Kidderminster Magistrates’ Court on Thursday, August 17.

Det Ch Insp Chris Percival said: “I’d like to thank the local community in Bockleton for their understanding and patience as we carried out our searches yesterday.




“We understand a police presence in such a small village can be concerning, however, I would like to reassure residents the incident was contained and at no point did we believe there was, or is any ongoing, risk to the wider public.”
