At the end of last week it was reported that three members of a gang responsible for an armed robbery and attempted robbery, were sentenced to a combined total of 40 years in prison.
The three members of the gang were involved in a cash delivery robbery in July 2012, as well as the attempted robbery at a store within the Halifax area during January last year.
During the armed robbery in July 2012, two of the gang members wearing balaclavas and armed with a gun and knife threatened a guard to hand over £20,000 before demanding more money from the guards van; before making off in a vehicle being driven by the third member.
The attempted store robbery, again saw two of the gang wearing balaclavas and armed with a knife threaten a shop assistant; before attaching a tow rope from a vehicle being driven by the third member to a free standing cash machine. However, when the tow rope snapped, the gang made off empty handed.
Following a court case, the members of the gang were handed various prison sentences which ranged from 18 years, to 11 years and three months – with the combined total exceeding 40 years.
