AN ERITH man has been jailed for more than eight years after trying to flee from police in just his pants and a rucksack full of drugs.

Torrian O'Brien, aged 23, pleaded guilty to five offences at Inner London Crown Court on January 8 after police discovered a handgun in his house in Portland Road, Lime Row, and cocaine in his cooker.

Bexley police officers had carried out a search under a drugs warrant on August 14.

They arrested him as he was trying to escape via his garden wearing underpants and carrying a large rucksack which contained 106 wraps of MDMA, 27 wraps of cocaine and 250 grams of cannabis, along with scales and self-seal bags.

The property was searched and inside officers found a loaded semi-automatic handgun and 23 bullets. A further 26 grams of 92 per cent pure cocaine was found in his cooker.

O’Brien was sentenced to eight years and four weeks in prison for possessing a prohibited handgun, possessing ammunition without a certificate, possessing drugs with intent to supply and failing to comply with the community requirements of a suspended sentence order imposed last year for drugs offences.

Another s&&&abag put away for the time being. Good. Now how about he loses his property and give it to some Romanian just arrived? Well, surely you don't think an English person is worthy of it do you? Apparently it has a garden to go with it...............luc
ky sod, What's a single bloke like that doing with a property with garden? There are more deserving people. Oh, and when sentence is finished, deport it to another island, where it can cause no more aggravation to decent folks will you.

He is definitely a wrong 'un but have you thought that maybe he lives in that house, with the garden, with his parents!

Why would he need to be deported. There's no mention of him being from another country!

lol I heard about this story and apparent he threw the rucksack containing the drugs over the fence right into the coppers arms with him replying "thanks mate you're nicked". well done boys keep wearing em down, you're doing a fine job. he either shared the house with others or just used it for his dodgy dealings. nice to see the plod doing something worthwhile with a result at the end :-)

I think you will find fatboy just answered your question for me regarding thoughts on his housing predicament, as for deporting him, whether born in this country or not, it's scum and there needs to be an island exclusively for the likes of him and other crims, far, far away from this main island, so that we can just dump em there and forget, .then perhaps us decent folk can live life in peace and not be supporting the likes of him.
