Isleworth Youth Sentenced to 20 Weeks Imprisonment
Caught in Hounslow in possession of knife and cannabis
On 29th June 2019 officers from Operation Wolverine were on patrol in Hounslow. The team’s attention was drawn to a taxi carrying three young males and so stopped the vehicle, searching the occupants under section 23 of the Misuse of Drugs Act.
A black handled knife was located in the rear of the car and Jonathan Williams-Churchill, aged 20, of Howard Road, Isleworth (one of the rear seat passengers) admitted to owning it. A further search of Jonathan located an exposed Stanley style blade in his bag along with a quantity of Cannabis.
Williams-Churchill was arrested and interviewed where he denied possession of the knife. Despite this he was subsequently charged with possession of a pointed/bladed article and possession of cannabis. He was remanded to Uxbridge Magistrates court on 1st July 2019 where he initially entered a not-guilty plea.
Officers collated further evidence including body-cam footage which meant Williams-Churchill changed his plea to guilty at the next hearing on 29th July 2019 at Uxbridge magistrate’s court. He was sentenced to 20 weeks imprisonment due to the serious nature of the offence.
Inspector Dan Thompson – Operation Wolverine “Dedicated officers from the West Areas Operation Wolverine put another knife carrying criminal behind bars, we are absolutely committed to taking on those who think it is acceptable to carry these dangerous weapons in public, These weapons have no place on our streets and there is no legitimate reason to be carrying them.”
