A man who was arrested after armed police stopped a car in West Hampstead has been jailed for five months.

Officers from the specialist firearms command swarmed the car at the junction of Mill Lane and West End Lane just after 10pm last Tuesday (February 3).

Kadie Spence, 27, of Northcote Road, Croydon, was charged with possession of a bladed article.

He appeared at Highbury Corner Magistrates Court the next day (February 4) where he pleaded guilty to possession of a bladed article and was sentenced to 20 weeks’ imprisonment.

Whilst at court, it was established that Spence was on licence from prison until May 2 for a firearm offence.

He was recalled to prison until this date for breaching the terms of his parole licence.

The 20 weeks’ imprisonment for possession of a bladed article will commence after his recall period.
