Dog breeder appears in court charged with a number of firearms offences after items were thrown into Buckingham Palace

A man has appeared in court charged with a number of firearm offence after items were thrown into Buckingham Palace earlier this year. 

Dog breeder David Huber, 60, of North Stainmore, Cumbria appeared in Cumbria Magistrates’ Court yesterday. 

Huber was charged with possession of a bladed article, possession of an offensive weapon, three counts of possession of ammunition without holding a firearm certificate, and possession of a weapon subject to general prohibition.

He has been bailed to appear at Carlisle Crown Court on November 3, for a plea and case management hearing.

On May 2 this year, police officers detained a man after he approached the gates of Buckingham Palace and threw a number of items into the Palace grounds.
