A gang of youngsters, who thieved tablets and mobile phones worth £150,000 by ‘steaming’ high street stores, have been imprisoned. The jailed youngsters, aged 15 to 22-years-old, raided 42 Carphone Warehouse outlets in London and surrounding zones over a period of six months in 2012.

The Carphone Warehouse robbery gangsters caused over £50,000 worth of damage between July and December 2012. The Carphone Warehouse robbers were convicted and sentenced at Southwark Crown Court after they admitted their conspiracy to perpetrate burglary.

Detective Inspector Mark Loving, associated with the National Mobile Phone Crime Unit (NMPCU), has voiced that the Carphone Warehouse robbery convictions function as a warning that the Met and the NMPCU will strongly and quickly act against those criminals, who utilise intimidation to satisfy their greediness.

The list of Carphone Warehouse robbery convicts include 22-year-old Jahreau Shepherd and 21-year-old Ugo Wilson, who were sentenced to four years and 27 months in prison respectively. 18-year-old Perry Hedges was given a punishment of 26 months’ imprisonment in a young offenders’ institution.

Three other boys, aged 15, 16 and 17, were sentenced to detention and training for 10, 18 and 12 months respectively.
