Police seize machete with ‘The leg remover’ etched on blade


Police seized this terrifying weapon during a raid on a drug dealer’s house – which criminals dubbed “The leg remover”.

The menacing double-bladed machete was discovered along with a knuckle-duster and small packages of white power and drugs paraphernalia.

Officers found the items after they swooped on a house in Beckton Avenue, Tunstall, Stoke-on-Trent, at 11am today (Tue).

Tweeting a picture of the haul, Staffordshire Police Chief Inspector John Owen wrote:
“Drugs recovered and an interesting inscription on a horrible looking weapon.”

The raid came as part of an action week to crackdown on criminals in the Tunstall and Mill Hill areas of the city.
