Wembley teen jailed for stashing arsenal of weapons
Cops discovered guns and bullets buried in his garden
A TEENAGER who buried deadly weapons in his garden was snared after cops found pictures of his handiwork on his mobile phone.
Emiljan Shega, 19, of Priory Close, Wembley, stashed the two guns and bullets in a flowerbed at the back of house but they were dug up by cops who raided his home in July this year
The officers, who were acting on a tip-off, uncovered a German-made Rohm model 9mm self-loading pistol, a Russian Baikal self-loading pistol, a silencer and 23 rounds of ammunition.
Two rounds loaded with a noxious substance was also seized.

Yesterday (Monday), at Kingston Crown Court Shega was jailed for five years after admitting two counts of possession of a prohibited firearm, possession of an accessory to a prohibited firearm, possession of ammunition, and possession of prohibited ammunition.
DCI Peter Beyer said: “Shega is a young criminal who believed he was being shrewd in concealing firearms in the garden; unfortunately for him, he didn’t count on them being recovered by police and that his own stupidity - ie. taking photos of the scene - would ultimately serve to assist in his incrimination.

“What he planned to do with the weapons is unclear, but I have no doubt they would have ended up in the hands of those involved in organised crime.
“In that sense this is a successful operation which has culminated in the removal of two loaded weapons from circulation.”
