A HAUL of illegal weapons destined to be delivered to an address in Helensburgh was intercepted by police last week.

Officers attended a home in Buchanan Road in Kirkmichael on Tuesday, May 7 after being tipped off by the UK Border Agency that prohibited weapons – including two knuckle dusters – had been intercepted in the postal system destined for the property.
