A man has been jailed for over 11 years after a sawn-off shotgun and half a kilo of cocaine was found during a Brent raid.
29-year-old Anthony Jones was arrested at Toucan Close, Stonebridge, after he collected a parcel shipped from the Caribbean.
His address was already suspected of having links with street gang activity and the National Crime Agency arrested Jones after he accepted delivery of the parcel on July 4.
After a search of the property, Metropolitan police officers found a sawn off shotgun and six rounds of ammunition hidden beneath a kitchen cupboard.
The investigation of class A drugs first began when the parcel, which also had magazines and brochures in it, was tracked from a US postal depot in America.
Jones was charged with importing Class A drugs and possession of a firearm, and was found guilty following a trial at the Old Bailey.
On December 22 at the same court, he was sentenced to 11 years and three months in prison.
Ian Truby, from the NCA’s Heathrow border investigation team, said: "This operation has taken a potentially deadly firearm off the streets of London.
"Working with law enforcement colleagues both abroad and at home we are determined to do all we can to disrupt the organised crime groups involved in drug trafficking and associated criminality."
Jones was sentenced to six years for the importation of Class A drugs, five years for possession of a firearm and three months for breaching a suspended sentence.
Sentences are to be served consecutively.
