Couple sentenced following drugs and guns raid in Kingsbury

Officers discovered cannabis farm, guns, ammunition and class a drugs after storming address in Summit Close

A man has been jailed and a woman given a conditional discharge following a drugs and guns raid in Kingsbury.

Stanislaw Pakula, 46, and Simone Simonetti, 42, of Summit Close, were charged after police stormed their home in September last year.

Officers discovered a cannabis factory containing around 100 plants in the basement of the address, two guns with more than 100 rounds of ammunition and a large quantity of class a drugs.

Simonetti was at home so was arrested immediately while Pakula was later traced and held by police.

Last week at Harrow Crown Court, Pakula admitted possession with intent to supply class a drugs, possession with intent to supply class B drugs and production of class B drugs.

He was sentenced to five years in jail.

Detective Constable Dax Hollick from Brent Crime Squad said: “I am very pleased that we have been able to deal with these individuals and remove the drugs and firearms from the streets of London.

“This type of crime will not be tolerated within Brent and we will do everything we can to combat these offences and bring those responsible to justice.”
