A man who was found in possession of a gun after he was stopped by officers from the Met's Organised Crime Command has been sentenced to fifteen years and six months' imprisonment.

Brian Odour 27 (10.11.90) of Richford Street, Hammersmith and Fulham, was found guilty of possession of a firearm with intent to endanger life and possession of ammunition with intent to endanger life after a three-day trial at Isleworth Crown Court in March.

Odour, who also pleaded guilty to possession of a bladed article, was sentenced on Tuesday, 3 April.

Odour was stopped by Met officers on 26 September 2017 on suspicion of possession of a firearm. He was searched and, in the waistband of his trousers, a gun was found.

The firearm was examined and was found to be in full working order with four rounds of ammunition. A lock knife was also found in the vehicle.

Odour was also sentenced for a series of drugs offences relating to an incident on 11 May 2017.

Met officers found a small amount of class A and B drugs in a bag after a search was carried out of his car.

Odour pleaded guilty to possession with intent to supply class A drugs, namely cocaine and MDMA, and possession with intent to supply Ketamine, a class B drug.

Detective Constable Richard Vanderpuije, of the Met's Organised Crime Command, said: "As a result of a proactive investigation a dangerous firearm has been taken off the streets of London. The lengthy sentence handed to Odour reflects the potentially fatal consequences of having a firearm in a public place."
