Woolwich gang member jailed over gun and knives
A GUN and knife-carrying gang member has been jailed for 12 years after admitting possessing the deadly weapons.
Zackaria Sugulle, aged 24, of St Margaret's Terrace, Woolwich, was jailed on August 31 after pleading guilty to possessing a firearm with intent to endanger life, possessing ammunition and possessing two kitchen knives.
Sugulle was arrested by police in June after they stopped a car in Eltham.
Inside a bag officers found a loaded Smith and Wesson revolver - later discovered to have been used in two shootings - along with two kitchen knives and a pair of black gloves.
Woolwich Crown Court heard how Sugulle was part of a gang with drug connections throughout the country, recruiting vulnerable youngsters.
He was sentenced to 12 years for the firearms and ammunition offences, and three years for the knife offences, to run concurrently.
