A COVENTRY man has been charged with having offensive weapons in Nuneaton, including a machete, knuckleduster and butterfly, claw and jack knives.

Otis Nagle, of Sedgemoor Road, was suspected of being involved in the supply of class A drugs.

Warwickshire Police searched an address associated with him in Nuneaton and found the haul of weapons.

The 29-year-old was further arrested and charged with possessing offensive weapons in a private place.




He was later released on conditional bail to appear at Coventry Magistrates Court on March 11.

PC Dave Jephcott said “Thankfully this alarming array of weapons is now safely out of circulation.


“Under new laws that came into effect last July as part of the Offensive Weapons Act 2019, it is a criminal offence to possess certain dangerous weapons in private, such as the ones that were seized.

“Anyone who chooses to hold these potentially lethal items will be held to account.”
