Adam Troman was lying in bed on a Sunday morning when armed police arrived, unannounced, to take away his guns.
He is another victim of Devon & Cornwall Police Firearms Team’s desperate attempt to keep their jobs in the wake of the August 2021 Plymouth shootings tragedy.
Their reason for removing his guns is over speeding tickets they allege he did not disclose on his firearms certificate application, back in 2012.
