Loaded guns and class A drugs found in Woodford Green raid

A police raid which led to the discovery of loaded guns and class A drugs has resulted in two men being jailed.

The raid, in The Roses, Woodford Green, took place in May last year after police received a tipoff.

Granville Freckleton, 32 and Otis Lewis, 28 were each found guilty of three counts of possession of a firearm, one count of possessing ammunition and one count of possessing prohibited ammunition.

There were also found guilty of possessing class A drugs.

Det Ch Insp Gary Bruce said: ““It has led to the imprisonment of two dangerous offenders and removal of three lethal firearms from the borough of Redbridge – weapons which would undoubtedly have been used to commit acts of serious violence.”
