A trio of robbers have been jailed after holding a terrified child and his parents hostage in their own home.
Nigel Jarman, 59, of The Square, Birchington was sentenced to four-and-a-half years in jail for his role in the robbery in Faversham earlier this year.
Darren Edwards, 38, of Stratford, London, and Raymond Wallace 40, of Old School Gardens, Margate, were imprisoned for four years and four months, and five years, respectively.
The three men raided an address in Lion Field in May in a case of mistaken identity.
Wallace forced his way into the property where the family were living- once they had shown the offenders their tenancy agreement the robbers left with £70 in cash.
Police tracked down the offenders' getaway car and the trio were arrested a short time later.

Janet Street-Porter, who lives in Kent, explains why she's such a tennis fan - and why the sport is better than TV cookery shows - as she opens a new clubhouse at the Faversham Tennis Club with the town's MP and Sports Minister, Hugh Robertson.
Kevin Blythe, Faversham Tennis Club head coach said the new facilities will take the club into the 21st Century.
"For a long time members have had to put up with outdated facilities which doesn't do them justice. Since Andy Murray won the Olympics and Wimbledon tennis has really been on the up.
"Having a new clubhouse is a fantastic step forward for us and hopefully phase two will see the completion two new mini tennis courts for children aged from four to nine.
"Who knows we could be training some of the champions of the future."
Janet Street-Porter and the Sports Minister Hugh Robertson MP have officially opened a new pavilion at Faversham Tennis Club.
It's the first stage of the redevelopment of the club which includes the demolition of an old 1980s clubhouse and also the creation of two new practice courts.
