A teenager from Wellingborough has been sentenced to four-and-a-half years behind bars after he admitted a number of firearms and drug offences.
The 17-year-old was convicted of possessing three firearms, ammunition and heroin with intent to supply.
The boy was arrested after police were alerted to suspicious behaviour in Linnet Close, Wellingborough, on 5 August last year.
They conducted a search of the area and found a shotgun which had recently been buried in the ground.
The teenage boy, who was 16 at the time, was located nearby and ran from officers, discarding a bag which contained a second shotgun.
Police officers stopped him and a subsequent search of his bedroom found a handgun and ammunition, along with heroin with a street value of around £4,000.
