Scarborough jewellery raiders jailed

Three men who carried out an armed robbery at a Scarborough jewellers have been sentenced to a total of 20 years in prison. They were sentenced at York Crown Court for the robbery which took place at Rosh Jewellers on Huntriss Row in December 2010. A fourth suspect is still being sought.

During the robbery a 58-year-old man, who was working alone in the shop, was threatened with a knife. He suffered a broken shoulder after being assaulted.

The gang stole approximately £50,000 worth of jewellery, which included a gold and diamond bracelet, gold earrings, necklaces, watches and diamond rings.

I welcome the sentences handed down by the court. They send a clear message to anyone committing violent and menacing crimes that they will be dealt with robustly and reflect the severity of the injuries suffered by the man who was working alone at the time of the robbery."

– Detective Sergeant Nigel Farthing, Scarborough CID
