A jury has heard that it is & # 39; very likely & # 39; is that former owner of Kings Cross night club John Ibrahim is the man whose DNA was found on the trigger of a gun hidden in his girlfriend's apartment.

Sarah Budge's lawyer told the NSW district court that the fact that the DNA profile left on the gun, named & # 39; Male One & # 39 ;, matched DNA left on wax strips used to removing a set of eyebrows – of which Mr Ibrahim had become famous – left few other conclusions.

& # 39; It is overwhelmingly likely that John Ibrahim, or a person known to him, was handling the gun, & # 39; Simon Buchen SC told the jury on Wednesday.

Budge, a 29-year-old model and restaurateur who has dated Ibrahim since 2013, has not been found guilty of three gun ownership charges after a stolen, illegible Glock 26 gun and loaded warehouse were hidden in a teapot at the bottom of her bedroom closet in August 2017.

The weapons were found by the federal police when they raided a series of properties, including Budge & # 39; s Double Bay unit and the home of Mr. Ibrahim & # 39; s Dover Heights.

Budge pleaded not guilty and claims she didn't know the gun was there.

She told the court earlier that Mr. Ibrahim had told her that he knew how the gun got into her apartment, but that he would not work it out.

Ibrahim has not been accused of the incident.

In his final descriptions, prosecutor Christopher Taylor said that jurors Budge tried to pull the wool over their eyes and claimed it was unbelievable that she didn't know the gun and the ammunition were in her bedroom.

Mr. Taylor invited the jury to think about where they would hide their own stolen guns, with solutions such as burial in a can in a national park.

Even if they had decided that burglary into their partner's flat was a good idea, the gun could be hidden behind the refrigerator or in the toilet reservoir, he said.

& # 39; Oh no, why not put it in a very obvious place? & # 39; he said.

& # 39; It is an insult to common sense that someone enters her apartment and places it at top level. & # 39;

Budge & # 39; s defense backed the suggestion and said police photo's from the wardrobe showed that next to the gun box was a broken lamp and a number of unused cushions.

He also noted that Budge was unpacking at the time and had unpacked a teapot from the box that she had stored in the cupboard.

He said that this meant that she had no reason to go back and look into it, and commented that she is not an organized person.

& # 39; She is a sloppy person. That does not differ from her good character, & he said.

Earlier, Mr. Taylor described Budge as an untruthful witness & # 39; or at least unreliable & # 39; for how she answered a question about something that suggested that Mr. Ibrahim had a connection with weapons.

He said Budge might have thought of her boyfriend who physically held a gun in answering no, but she added that Ibrahim & # 39; anti-weapons & # 39; and referred to his memoirs.

In the memoir, the author claims that he could not decide if he wanted to take his hand off his gun to give hands to corrupt agent Roger Rogerson when the couple met.

& # 39; It's an unforgettable story, right? & # 39; Mr. Taylor told the jury.

The process continues.
