Two teenagers have been sentenced after pleading guilty to firearms offences in Barnsley.

A 17-year old boy, who cannot be named for legal reasons, has been sentenced to three years in a young offenders institute after pleading guilty to possession of a firearm with no firearms certificate in place, possession of ammunition and threats to kill.

Jacob Robinson, 19, of Bridge Street, Barnsley, has been sentenced to 16 months suspended for two years after pleading guilty to possession of a firearm with no firearms certificate in place, possession of ammunition and possession of cannabis.

The sentencing follows an incident on Sunday 14 July at 3am in which officers were requested to attend a property on Cooper Road in Barnsley after it was reported that a window was broken by a firearms discharge.

Both teenagers  were sentenced at Sheffield Crown court last Friday (4 October 2019).
