A man from Brent who was found with a stun gun in his bedroom during a police search has been jailed for three years.
Officers uncovered the weapon at the home of Manoj Sivarayan in Brinkburn Gardens, Edgware, during a visit on an unrelated matter.
The 32-year-old told officers the weapon belonged to a lodger who he had sublet the room to and the mystery man was abroad.
He also claimed he had previously touched the stun gun to get it to work after his ‘lodger’ had shown him the weapon.
At Harrow crown Court he was found guilty of possession of a prohibited weapon (disguised firearm).

Detective Constable Claire McGlynn, Brent CID, said: “I hope this sentence sends the message that police and the Courts takes this type of crime extremely seriously and that people caught will face a lengthy term in jail.
“Illegal firearms, real or fake, have no place in our society and those who think otherwise will face the full force of the law if found in possession.”
