28 year old Babatunde Arogundade from Hatton Street Marylebone has been jailed at the Old Bailey for a total of 27 years for guns and drugs offences.

This is a total term made up of consecutive sentences of 15, eight and four year terms for conspiracy to supply controlled drugs, possession of loaded and unloaded firearms.

The Met police say he was one of three people targeted in ‘a proactive operation’ by their Projects Team.

34 year old Fred Jones-Lartey from Kechill Gardens, Bromley received 12 years for conspiracy to supply controlled drugs.

Nicole Douglas, who’s 28, from Princes Court, Wembley was jailed for four years for conspiracy to supply controlled drugs.

Detective Inspector Keely Smith, from the Projects Team, said:

This case has prevented six firearms from reaching the streets of London and having potentially lethal outcomes. I believe Arogundade was looking to sell the weapons on to those who would be willing to use them. This investigation highlights the work my team is doing on a day-to-day basis to keep the community safe.

Douglas was arrested in May 2013 during a vehicle stop in Friern Barnet Road and found in possession of a kilo of cocaine.

Arogundade was arrested in Eastwick Row, Hemel Hempstead after another vehicle stop with a boot full of firearms.

The six weapons included a handgun, a shortened pump action shotgun and a sawn-off shotgun together with ammunition.
