Gun siege Face­book nut jailed

Midweek Sport - - NEWS -

A ‘GUN­MAN’ who urged his 400 on­line friends to watch a “live mur­der on Face­book” has been jailed.

Greg Searle posted reg­u­lar mes­sages on the site dur­ing an eight-hour siege as armed cops sur­rounded his home.

Searle ( above), 35, was handed two years for threat­en­ing po­lice dur­ing the run­ning com­men­tary in which he posted, ‘I give you live mur­der on Face­book. Bet you sick freaks can’t wait for me to make my move so you can watch”.

At one stage Searle up­dated his Face­book page to say, “I’ve left my gre­nade some­where.”

Cardiff Crown Court heard how the siege at Chep­stow, South Wales even­tu­ally ended when cops stormed the house – and dis­cov­ered a gun he’d branded was fake.

Searle pleaded guilty to af­fray and ad­mit­ted threat­en­ing po­lice with an im­i­ta­tion firearm.
