45-year-old Gavin Price of Downsview, Sandown has been found guilty of multiple offences including possession of an imitation firearm, offensive weapons and bladed articles.
In October last year, Police officers stopped a car which was being driven without an MOT on Perowne Way. The driver of the car was noticeably obstructive and officers found out why when they searched the vehicle.
Price, who had a lock knife tucked into his belt, kept a crossbow and bolts in the boot of his car. As officers continued to search the vehicle they found hunting knives, more lock knives, axes, and a BB gun.
As a result, Price was arrested on the spot and subsequently charged with weapons offences.
Yesterday (Tuesday), the 45-year-old was found guilty at the Isle of Wight Crown Court of 17 offences including possession of an imitation firearm, possession of offensive weapons and possession of bladed articles.
He has been remanded in custody and will be sentenced at Portsmouth Crown Court on 27th September.
