Police are asking anyone who may have seen any suspicious activity in the area on 9th April to contact them.

Also, anyone, who may have seen or been offered the guns for sale, which were legally held by the occupant, is also asked to contact Lincolnshire Police on 101, quoting incident 336 of 9th April.

Alternatively, contact Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111.
