Men jailed for string of moped-related shop robberies including Woolwich

Three men have been jailed for a string of moped-enabled robberies of mobile phone shops across south and south east London including EE stores in Woolwich and Bromley last August.

£50,000 worth of stock was stolen. One of the three was arrested when tasered at one robbery. On 11 September another was arrested “outside his home address where he attempted to flee but was caught and detained.”



On 13 September the third  “was arrested by Operation Venice officers outside his home addresses.”
