Detective inspector Andrew Wright-Lakin said: “We will always act when we believe a property is being used for an illegal activity.
"We continue to remove as many weapons as we possibly can from Grantham and the wider county under Operation Raptor – our force’s ongoing drive to take them out of circulation.
"By doing so we reduce the chances of them being used to incite fear, create violence or in other crimes including those involving drugs.”
