On police arrival at the taxi rank at 23:45, the suspect started running away and threw the firearm over a fence. The members managed to arrest him and recovered the 9mm pistol with 11 rounds of ammunition.
He will be appearing before the Motherwell Magistrates Court on 19 November to face charges of the illegal possession of an unlicensed firearm and ammunition.
