Arrested on Acton Vale during what is believed to be have been a drug deal
An 18-year-old male from Shepherd’s Bush has been sent to jail for 33 week after he was found in possession of a ‘Rambo’ style knife.
Jahcub Pierre-Registe, of Elsham Road, W14 was sentenced on Monday, (19 October) at Uxbridge Magistrates’ Court.
He was detained on Monday, 28 August at 5.50pm after officers from the Violent Crime Task Force were on patrol in Acton and spotted what they believed to be a drug deal in progress at Beech Avenue, Acton Vale.
As they approached the group of five men dispersed and they gave chase catching Pierre-Registe. He was searched and the knife was found in a black sheath in his waistband. The blade was 10" long with 3-4" handle.
Pierre-Registe was arrested and taken into custody. He was charged with possession of a pointed or bladed article and further remanded in custody while he awaited a court date. He had previously pled guilty to the offence on 29 August. He must also pay the court £400.
PC Chapman of the Violent Crime Task Force said: “I hope the sentence handed to Jahcub Pierre-Registe will show those who carry knives that they will go to prison if they are caught. It is against the law and incredibly dangerous.
“Our officers are out day and night, working to tackle violence across London and will continue to take knives and weapons off the streets.”
The police say that communities have a vital role to play in tackling violent crime and they urge anyone who may have information to tell them, so that they can tackle violence. They need information about crime or those who carry a weapon, or those that exploit people for gain or revenge, while putting young people’s lives at risk. Community intelligence can be used to great effect to not only detect, but also prevent crime, keep London safe and save young lives.
