Two men have been jailed after a loaded gun was found at a home in Enfield.

Miguel Costa, 27, and Abraham Cardoso, 24, were arrested in September last year on suspicion of drug offences.

The arrests came after firearms officers deployed to Poynters Road in Enfield as part of an investigation into a north London organised crime network stopped the two suspects.

Searching Costa’s home in Poynters Road, they found a loaded 7.62 Nagant calibre revolver with a silencer in his bedroom.

Police subsequently searched an address connected to Cardoso, of Lansdowne Drive, Hackney, recovering various rounds of ammunition including 7.62 bulleted cartridges.

Both men were subsequently charged with two counts of possession of a firearm with intent to endanger life and two counts of possession of ammunition with intent to endanger life.

On Monday (March 4), both men pleaded guilty to the charges.

Costa has been jailed for seven years and Cardoso for five years.
