Holidaymaker Had Electric Stun Gun In Luggage

Heathrow Airport
A High Wycombe man, caught with an illegal stun gun disguised as a torch after stepping off an international flight at Heathrow Airport, has admitted the offence.

Alan Aldous, 42, of Normans Court, Micklefield Road, will be sentenced at Isleworth Crown Court on December 12.

He pleaded guilty yesterday to possessing a prohibited weapon, namely a stun gun, at the airport's Terminal Three on May 4.

The prosecution dropped a more serious charge of possessing a disguised weapon, which carries a minimum five-year prison sentence.

He had a stun gun that had the appearance of a torch that had 'Stun Gun' written on the side,” said prosecutor Mr. Julius Capon.

Judge Paul Dugdale refused a defence application to sentence immediately and ordered a probation report, announcing: “I think it's important the court knows a little bit more about you and why you had a stun gun in your possession.”

Aldous was granted unconditional bail.
