Man jailed for 18-months for ammunition possession

Peter CodmanA 35-year-old man has been jailed for 18-months after admitting possessing firearms ammunition, even though he was banned from owning a firearm or ammunition.

Peter Codman, of Willington Road, Firth Park, appeared at Sheffield Crown Court yesterday (Tuesday 2 January) where he was due to go on trial charged with possession of ammunition for a firearm when prohibited from doing so.

He pleaded guilty to this offence and was sentenced to 18-months in prison.

DC Ryan Griffiths investigating said: “Codman was banned from possessing ammunition or firearms for five years, which he has breached and this has resulted in a custodial sentence.

“I hope this highlights how seriously we take matters of armed criminality in South Yorkshire and that we take robust action to tackle this issue.”
