Two men from Acton have been sentenced to years of imprisonment following a search warrant by the Gangs Task Force.

Edward Cooley, 23, of St Andrews Road, was sentenced to 10 years and eight months imprisonment at Isleworth Crown Court last Friday (May 23) for possession of a prohibited firearm and ammunition x 3, possession of Class A and B drugs with intent to supply, possession of criminal property, actual bodily harm and affray.

Jamie Wise, 23, of Joseph Avenue, Friary park, was sentenced to two years imprisonment on the same day for actual bodily harm and affray.

Officers executed a search warrant at a property in Faraday Road on June 28, 2013, and found a rifle, a semi automatic handgun, a revolver, three types of ammunition for each firearm, a large amount of cash, a large quantity of cocaine, crack cocaine and cannabis, a stun gun, CS spray and a number of knives.

Cooley was arrested at the address and charged.

Further investigations lead detectives to link Cooley and Wise to an affray and assault where a 14-year-old boy was stabbed in Faraday Road on June 19, 2013, and the two offenders were later arrested.

Detective Inspector Rana , Head of the Gangs Task Force, said: “The Gangs Task Force is committed to making Ealing a safer place for all our communities.

“We have had a significant drop in gun crime over the last year, much of which is directly attributable to the proactive actions of officers on the Gangs Task Force.”
