9:00am Thursday 26th September 2013 in News
A MAN who stole money in an early morning raid, holding a ‘Rambo’-style knife to the throat of the victim, has been jailed for more than five years.
Scott Stevems, of Brick Street, Warrington, was jailed at Chester Crown Court on Thursday.
He had pleaded guilty on the day of a planned trial to one count of robbery and another of perverting the course of justice.
The court heard that in the early hours of April 25, Stevens along with two others, forced their way into a shed in a garden on Morris Avenue, Latchford.
He stole money, a Google tablet and held the knife to the throat of the victim.
While on remand Stevens wrote a letter to a friend asking him to intimidate the victim of the robbery. Stevens was then charged with perverting the course of justice.
During sentencing the recorder of Chester Judge Elgan Edwards, said Stevens had shown little remorse and had a criminal record stretching back to the age of 15 for a large number of offences.
DC Tom Hall, from Warrington CID, said: "This was a significant conviction.
“Without the co-operation of the victim and the wider community a dangerous offender would not have been brought to justice.
“Warrington CID is committed to tackling serious crime and ensuring that dangerous offenders - like Scott Stevens - are caught, put behind bars and punished for their actions."
