Guns found up up coat sleeve

A SUSPECTED criminal tried to escape the long arm of the law by hiding firearms up his sleeve.

The find was made after gardai from the traffic unit in Wicklow town became suspicious about the occupants of a car travelling on the N11 towards Wexford.

Two uniformed gardai stopped the car at Coyne's Cross at Ashford on Wednesday and questioned the woman driver and her male passenger.

During a search of the passenger gardai found two handguns concealed in the sleeve of a jacket being worn by the man.

Both occupants of the car were arrested and were being questioned by gardai last night.
