Woman jailed for eight years for drugs and gun offences

A mother has been found guilty of possessing two firearms and ammunition and thousands of pounds worth of Class A drugs – which were found in her kitchen cupboard.

Remmay Williams, 24, of Blount Road, Leicester, was sentenced to six years in prison for the firearms offences and two years in prison for the drug offences.

During a search of her address, Police discovered 126 grams of crack cocaine and 96 grams of heroin and 13 grams of powder cocaine packaged up in her kitchen cupboard, along with a loaded semi-automatic pistol, wrapped in a tea towel.

The discovery at her property came just hours after James Orme was stopped in his vehicle and arrested for firearm and drugs offences.

He was stopped having left William’s home address just moments earlier and in the front seat of his car was 308 grams of crack cocaine and 137 grams of heroin along with a sub-machine gun.

Orme, 29, of Station Road, Countesthorpe, appeared in court last year and was sentenced in June to nine years behind bars.

Investigator Emily Sharpe said: “We are committed to taking both drugs and firearms off the streets of Leicester and will do all we can to stop them coming into our counties and being distributed.”
