BY OLIVIA WHALEY
These are the faces of three criminals who have been sentenced to almost 20 years for their involvement in a number of burglaries in Leicestershire and Cornwall.
The three men, Thomas Law, Callum Marson and Scott Colman appeared at court last week where they were charged with robbery, conspiracy to commit robbery, conspiracy to commit burglary and conspiracy to steal motor vehicles.
The men are already serving prison sentences for handling stolen goods and aggravated vehicle taking without consent.
Law, 28, was arrested in November 2014 after crashing a stolen car he was driving. In thecar, property was found that linked the three men to burglaries over the previous days across Leicestershire and Cornwall.
A Leicestershire police spokesperson said: “After their initial prosecutions, investigative work continued that linked the men to other burglaries, which they have now been sentenced for.”
The UK crime statistics shows that robbery made up for 1.2% of crimes in Leicester during July.
