POLICE ended up with more than they bargained for after carrying out a warrant at an address for a suspected harassment offence.

A spokesman for South Swindon Police said that when officers arrived at Dulverton Avenue to arrest 49-year-old Ian Paul they found him in possession of a Taser-type weapon.

He has been charged with the offence and is currently on conditional bail, due to appear at Swindon Magistrates' Court later this month.
