A Sheffield man whose DNA was found on the trigger of a gun has been jailed for seven-and-a-half years for a series of drugs and firearms offences.
Osai Williams, who is also known as Osai Irele-Domingo, was jailed for possession of a firearm, possession of ammunition without a certificate and possession with intent to supply heroin, cocaine and cannabis.
The 21-year-old was sentenced on Thursday 6 September, at Sheffield Crown Court, after admitting the charges at a hearing last month.
Leading the investigation DC Paolo Messina said: “The streets of Sheffield are much safer now that this prolific drug dealer is behind bars.
“As a result of an intelligence led operation we have been able to remove this dangerous criminal from a community and protect members of the public from harm.”
Williams, of no fixed abode, was arrested in February this year after officers carried out a warrant at a Sheffield address.
He was located in the bathroom of the property where two large Clingfilm wraps of suspected Class A drugs were floating in the toilet basin.
“One wrap proved to be heroin with a street value of £850 and the other was identified as a cutting agent,” added DC Messina.
“A further five wraps of crack cocaine, a large wrap of cannabis and a set of digital scales which contained traces of heroin, cocaine and cannabis, were also found during the search as well as a Colt Revolver, a large machete and large hunting knife, under the settee.
“The handgun contained six live rounds in the barrel and there was also a further seven rounds in a separate compartment of the bag.”
Mobile phones were also recovered from the address which showed text messages relating to the supply of Class A and Class B drugs.
The warrant was carried out as part of Operation Albatross – an on-going investigation into drugs and armed criminality in Sheffield.
