19-year-old kept double-barrelled sawn-off shotgun

A PROMISING rugby league player, who was on the books of the Bradford Bulls, has been locked up for more than five years after he was found in possession of a double-barrelled sawn-off shotgun.
Bradford Crown Court heard that Jack Taylor, 19, had played for the Bulls and been scouted by Super League’s Huddersfield Giants.
But Judge Jonathan Rose told him yesterday: “You had the possibility of a career in rugby league, and you worked with the Bulls. That would have been a bright future for you. You have thrown it away.”
Prosecutor Heather Gilmore told the court that police constables Panther and Musket stopped a Ford Focus in Spindle Close, Tyersal, in the early hours of February 11 this year.
Taylor was driving and his co-accused, Nathan Kuyateh, was the passenger.
The officers could smell cannabis.
Kuyateh produced two small bags of cannabis. Several wraps of heroin and crack cocaine were found down his trouser leg. He was also found in possession of £400 cash.
Taylor was found with a bag of cannabis and £525 cash secreted in his underwear.
During a search of Taylor’s home, officers noted a bright yellow carrier bag hanging on coat hooks. Inside was a sawn-off shotgun wrapped in a towel. The weapon was ornately decorated and of some age, but was a viable firearm and the stock and barrels had been shortened.
Taylor, of Bradford Road, Birkenshaw, pleaded guilty to possessing a prohibited firearm and possessing cannabis with intent to supply.
