Two men and a woman have been sentenced at Central Crown Court following a cash- in-transit robbery outside of a Tesco Express store in East London.
Darrell Wright, Easton Livingstone-Fofie and Lauren Bee were all found guilty of involvement in the robbery that took place outside the store in Bow Road, E3 London. The two men attacked a G4S guard whilst making a delivery and made off with the cashbox he was carrying.
Following a tip off, police were called to Lauren Bee’s address where the remnants of a cashbox were discovered along with traces of SmartWater, which was used to link the offenders back to the crime scene. Further traces of the unique taggant were subsequently recovered from a £20 note found at Wright’s address and in the getaway vehicle.
Wright was sentenced to 4 years 6 months imprisonment, whilst Livingstone-Fofie received a 3 year jail term, with 253 days spent on remand to count towards the sentence. Lauren Bee was ordered to undertake 80 hours of unpaid work.
