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.
