2 Men Jailed For Buckingham Robbery

2 Men Jailed For Buckingham Robbery

1:26pm 27th January 2010

Two men have been jailed for seven years for a robbery at Buckingham Garden Centre.

On 26 October 2009, two men and a boy approached two employees of Buckingham garden centre, took their car keys, forced one of them into the garden centre and made him open the safe. The robbers stole a large amount of cash.

Elston Lewis Clarke, aged 18, from Algernon Road, London; Sidi Mohammed Hauzi, aged 30, from Tring Road, Aylesbury and a 17-year-old boy from Aylesbury were arrested the same night and all three were charged with robbery on 27 October.

Clarke pleaded guilty at Aylesbury Crown Court on 10 December 2009 and was sentenced to three years detention in a Young Offenders Institute. Hauzi pleaded guilty at Aylesbury Crown Court on 20 January and was sentenced to four years imprisonment.

The 17-year-old boy pleaded guilty at Aylesbury Crown Court on 20 January and will be sentenced on Tuesday 9 February.

A/Det Insp Dominic Williamson said: “Both Thames Valley Police and the courts take robbery extremely seriously. It is always dealt with by a Crown Court, where the sentences can be much higher than in a Magistrates’ Court.

“We have a very robust approach in Aylesbury to investigating robbery so offenders here run a very high risk of getting caught.

“I would say to anyone thinking about committing these types of offences to consider whether stealing a mobile phone, an iPod or cash is really worth a long stretch in prison. Victims of robbery are often left traumatised by the experience and can suffer loss of confidence and become too scared to go out. Thankfully these offences are very rare in Aylesbury but we will take a zero tolerance approach to anyone committing these crimes.”
