The 38-year-old also pleaded guilty to possessing ammunition, namely a quantity of .22 and .308 bullets.

He pleaded guilty at the High Court in Glasgow today (Tuesday, July 9), after the significant firearms recovery last year.

Following it, Detective Superintendent Steven Elliot from the OCCTU has spoken out on the find.

He said: “This was a significant recovery and underlines our commitment to the Serious Organised Crime Taskforce and the country’s Serious Organised Crime Strategy.

“We would continue to urge anyone with information or concerns about firearms activity in their area to contact Police Scotland on 101, or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.”

Lupe has been remanded in custody and will be sentenced on August 13.
