5:40pm 10th January 2017
A 31-year-old man from Chesham has been jailed for robbing the Lloyd's bank in his hometown TWICE within the space of 5 days.
Tyler Strickland of Sunnyside Road stole cash during both robberies, and even threatened staff during the second one, claiming he had a 'shooter'.
He pleaded guilty to two counts of robbery at a hearing at Aylesbury Crown Court on 29 November last year.
Today the man was sentenced to 21 months imprisonment.

Investigating officer, Det Con Fred Ruffle of Force CID, said:
“Strickland robbed Lloyds Bank in High Street on two occasions last year, at about 3.20pm on Wednesday 19 October and at around 2.25pm on Monday 24 October.
“During the second robbery Strickland threatened staff, claiming he had a ‘shooter’.
“On both occasions he stole cash before fleeing the scene.
“Following these offences we released CCTV images of the offender and received lots of information from the public. I would like to thank the public for coming forward.
“Thanks to excellent police work, Strickland was arrested and charged with the robberies on 26 October.
“I am grateful that Strickland pleaded guilty to the offences and that he has now been sent to prison for his crimes.
“I would like to thank all the officers and staff at Thames Valley Police who work on this investigation, as well as the Crown Prosecution Service for bringing the case to court.”
