In recent years there has been an increase in seizures of stun guns / tasers which are disguised as torches or mobile phones. Often, these are seized at the border from returning holidaymakers or HGV drivers, but occasionally the police find these items in a person’s home while searching for something else. Many people do not realise that these items are illegal, and most do not realise that they may face a minimum five year prison sentence for possession of one.
