Jeffrey Paul Lloyd, a Gorseinon man, was jailed for six years for possessing an arsenal of illegal weapons that had been found in his home during a raid in March. The law enforcement authorities have discovered a handcrafted pipe gun, a cache of ammunition and illegal pepper spray. Lloyd stated that he bought the weapons from Agora Marketplace (from the dark web).
Lloyd told the police that he has an apocalyptic view of the world and he bought the weapons for survival purposes.
After a tip-off from the Metropolitan Police in London, the local police officers also found an array of knives, an axe and a crossbow. Ian Wright from prosecution stated that the man bought the weapons from a dark net marketplace (Agora):
“The different details were provided to the Met Police by a seller in Germany as a customer had purchased prohibited ammunition and firearms,” Wright said.
Wright also stated that the local law enforcement authorities have immediately arrested and detained Lloyd at his house who showed them his bedroom where they found ammunition for a 9 mm pistol and 12 bore shotgun cartridges.
Ian Wright made some other statements regarding the case:
“He also indicated he had CS gas.”
