Waite, of no fixed address, was arrested at the scene. Inquiries revealed that the gun had been stolen during a burglary at a house in Doncaster in 2008.
The investigation was led by Detective Constable Matt Meyers, of Operation Redshank, a specialist team which tackles gun and gang crime. He said: “I’m pleased with this sentence as it reflects the serious nature of the crime.
“We may never know what this gun was intended for but the fact that it’s now off the streets of Derby can only be a good thing.”
