One judge was dealing with a “gunsmith” who had hidden a terrifying stockpile of weapons, from rifles to grenades and other explosives, in a home for the disabled.

These are the faces of 13 criminals who were jailed last week for Merseyside related crimes.

And a court heard how a despicable former police officer cheated his wife and colleagues with his repulsive behavior.

The judges had to convict a job that broke the bones of a rival with a baseball bat, drug dealers and scammers who were on the run for months, and vicious thugs who left their victims scarred for life.

One court heard of a rapist who snuck into a stranger’s house in a nightmare scenario and raped his victim.

Here is an overview of some of the most serious cases that have been closed in the past week.

The 31-year-old hid three rifles, a deactivated machine gun, a sawed-off shotgun and explosives in William Ross’ Cressington apartment.

Michael Green hid a stash of rifles and grenades in the home of a man with cerebral palsy.

Green blamed Mr. Ross for the weapons stash when police discovered the loot in July 2018, which led to the innocent man being arrested and spending three days in custody.

Mr. Ross was even charged with firearms offences, but the charges were dropped when investigators realized that he had been taken advantage of by the man who was supposed to take care of him.

The police then raided Green’s home in Micawber Close, Toxteth, and found pyrotechnic detonators, sulfur flowers and bags of potassium sulfate – both substances that can be used in explosives.

No evidence was found that he had intended to use the weapons, that he had made plans to manufacture explosives, or that he had passed weapons to others.

Green admitted to owning a firearm without a certificate, possessing ammunition without a certificate, and possessing explosives.

He was sentenced to eight years in prison.

However, the prosecution continued to deny that he was “a gunsmith”, he added: “If anyone needed such items, he was able to provide them”…
