Identical triplets jailed after DNA found on Uzi sub-machine gun in London

Identical triplets have been jailed after DNA linked them to a plot to supply an "extremely dangerous criminal" with an Uzi sub-machine gun.

DNA found on a handgun linked it to either Reiss, Ralston or Ricky Gabriel but it was impossible for police to prove which brother it belonged to.

However, an investigation revealed all three were involved.

The 28-year-olds, from Edmonton in north London, were sentenced at Blackfriars Crown Court.

Ricky and Ralston Gabriel, who are both semi-professional footballers, were found guilty of conspiracy to possess firearms and ammunition with intent to endanger life in July and each jailed for 14 years.

Reiss Gabriel was found guilty of the same charge and also admitted possession of a firearm with intent to endanger life after being caught with a handgun in July last year, and two counts of possession of Class A drugs with intent to supply.

He was jailed for 18 years.
