Pair jailed over firearms offences after loaded gun found in car


TWO Bradford men have been jailed for nearly 14 years after they were convicted of firearms offences.

Paul Nriapia and Joseph McCrory were sentenced at Bradford Crown Court yesterday in relation to the seizure of a loaded revolver, which was recovered from a Ford Focus in Barden Avenue, Bradford in December.

Nriapia, 58, of Beacon Place, was jailed for seven years and three months after he was found guilty of conspiracy to possess a firearm without a certificate and conspiracy of possession of ammunition without a certificate.


McCrory, 36, of Forber Grove, was sentenced to six years and four months in relation to the same matters.

Speaking after the sentencing Detective Chief Inspector Warren Stevenson, of Protective Services Crime, said: "Matters involving firearms are taken very seriously by the police and the courts and we welcome these sentences.

"We hope this sends out a message to others that if you are involved in their use or possession, you will be caught and will almost certainly receive a substantial prison sentence.
