Bolton News


Mia Peers, aged 20, has been jailed for five years for possession of a firearm, with a concurrent fifteen-week term for possessing ammunition without a certificate. In November last year, a man with whom she had “an on-off relationship” asked her to store a bag under the stairs at her home in Salford, Greater Manchester, adding that she wasn’t to ask questions or tell anyone where it was. A few days later, while Peers was visiting a neighbour's house where two other women and children were present, a group of masked men entered the property. One of them held a knife to Peers’ throat and demanded to know where the firearm was. During her subsequent police interview, Peers failed to mention the bag she’d been given. However, after finding it contained a modified pistol and five bullets, she told her mother, who alerted police. The court heard that Peers has since changed address several times for fear of her own safety. The judge did not consider Peers’ recent epileptic seizures or her current pregnancy to be exceptional circumstances that would enable him to reduce the minimum mandatory sentence.
