Twenty-two males sentenced for conspiracy to steal during 2011 London disorder

21/02/2013

Twenty-two males aged 15 to 32 have been sentenced at Wood Green Crown Court to a total of almost 40 years imprisonment for conspiracy to steal.

The group were convicted and sentenced following two trials relating to the incident which took place during the disorder in London in August 2011.
Jenny Hopkins, CPS London Deputy Chief Crown Prosecutor, said: "This group took part in a joint plan to carry out large scale theft on 9 August 2011.
"Although the offenders were caught before their plan was carried out they had stolen a car and organised the use of two large vans to carry out their plan in North West London.
"It was the prosecution's case that they intended to use the stolen car to ram-raid the window of a store, allowing the large number of men in the vans to enter the store and steal the goods and use the vans to transport the spoils away.
"Their thorough preparation for this crime included the use of gloves to avoid leaving fingerprints or DNA and wearing masks, balaclavas and extra clothing to avoid recognition.
"This group tried to take advantage of the disorder in the city in the hope that they could steal property undetected.
"CPS London is committed to working with its police partners to tackle gangs that engage in criminality and to deter others by bringing strong prosecutions against these criminals."
