Three criminals working together to sell guns and Class A drugs have been jailed for a total of 43 years.
Babatunde Arogundade, 28, of Westmacott House, Hatton Street, St John's Wood, was sentenced to a total of 27 years imprisonment at the Old Bailey on Friday (March 27).
He received 15 years for conspiracy to supply controlled drugs, eight years for possession of loaded firearms and four years for possession of unloaded firearms, all to be served consecutively.
Fred Jones-Lartey, 34, of Kechill Gardens, Bromley, was sentenced to 12 years imprisonment for conspiracy to supply controlled drugs.
Nicole Douglas, 28, of Princes Court, Wembley, was jailed for four years for conspiracy to supply controlled drugs.
On May 7, 2013 Douglas was arrested in possession of a kilogram of cocaine during a stop on a vehicle in Friern Barnet Road, Barnet. Police searched her home and found large quantities of cutting agent.
Arogundade was arrested on May 27, 2013, in Eastwick Row, Hemel Hempstead, after officers stopped a car he was travelling in and discovered six firearms in the boot, including a handgun, a shortened pump action shotgun and a sawn-off shotgun, together with ammunition.
Further inquiries linked the drugs to Arogundade and Jones-Lartey, who was arrested in November 2013.
All three were subsequently charged.
Arogundade and Jones-Lartey were convicted of their offences on March 2, 2015, following a five-week trial at the Old Bailey. Douglas had pleaded guilty to conspiracy to supply a controlled drug on November 26, 2013.
Bianca Willoughby, who had been charged after being arrested at the scene with Arogundade, was later acquitted at court, being found not guilty of possession of firearms.
Detective Inspector Keely Smith, from the Metropolitan Police's Projects Team, said: "This case has prevented six firearms from reaching the streets of London and having potentially lethal outcomes.
“I believe Arogundade was looking to sell the weapons on to those who would be willing to use them.
“This investigation highlights the work my team is doing on a day-to-day basis to keep the community safe.”
