Shotgun 'Selfie' Man Jailed In Sheffield
A Sheffield man has been jailed for six years after police found a picture of him posing with a shotgun on his mobile phone.
Edward Cooper, 24 of Dryden Way, Sheffield pleaded guilty to possessing a prohibited weapon and cannabis at Sheffield Crown court earlier this week.
On Saturday, 28 June 2014, police arrested Cooper on Adkins Road, Sheffield on suspicion of driving offences and possession of cannabis.
Whilst in custody, officers found a ‘selfie’ on his mobile phone showing him posing with a shotgun.
A search was conducted and officers later recovered a sawn-off shotgun with ammunition. Following forensic work, Coopers fingerprints were found on the firearm and he admitted to possessing a prohibited weapon and cannabis.
Acting Detective Sgt Lee Bower said:
'This investigation demonstrates our commitment to tackling gun crime and those involved in the possession of illegal weapons. We hope that this sentence will deter other young people from becoming involved in these types of crimes.'
Police have launched an investigation after workmen found a body in a college sewer.
