SHAME SHAME


EIGHT YEARS’ JAIL FOR GANG MEMBER WHO USED HIS PHV IN LANCS THEFT SPREE WORTH £500K


Three men have been jailed for over 25 years for stealing luxury cars, cash and jewellery worth more than £500,000. The Liverpool Echo reports that the gang, who travelled between targets in a PHV belonging to one of the men, carried out burglaries in Lancashire and North Wales stealing high performance cars totalling approximately £250,000. During sentencing, further thefts, which pre-dated the police investigation, were taken into account, bringing the total value of goods stolen to more than £500,000. Following a trial at Preston Crown Court in May, Michael Gallagher, 32, from Liverpool, was found guilty of conspiracy to commit burglary and theft of motor vehicles. He was sentenced to eight years. PHV driver Shujun Miah, 34, from Black- burn, was found guilty of the same offences and sentenced to eight years. Daniel Deens, 32, from Kirkby, pleaded guilty to the same offences and was


sentenced to nine years and four months after admitting further offences. The court heard how Miah used his PHV to transport the three men around the north west over a four- week period in February and March 2019, mainly


targeting properties with high- performance cars parked outside. A total of nine cars including Audis and VW Golfs, were stolen from across the region. The gang used specialised equipment to snap locks and gain entry to the addresses in order to steal car keys as well as using a technique known as “fishing” to hook keys through letter- boxes.


Registration plates were then doctored on the stolen vehicles in an attempt to avoid detection. Officers investigating the burglaries, codenamed Operation Speed, analysed telephone records, CCTV and ANPR data to track the group’s movements and link all of the offences. During the investigation parts from a number of the stolen cars were discov- ered at chop shops in Nelson and Merseyside. Several of the stolen cars have never been recovered. High value jewellery and sums of cash were also reported stolen during the burglaries. Shortly after midnight on March 15, 2019 officers from the Tactical Operation Unit stopped a PHV driven by Miah and arrested him along with Gallagher at the scene. Deens, who is thought to have made off from the taxi, was subsequently arrested in Mersey- side following a country-wide appeal for his arrest.


CABBIE CAUGHT WITH OVER £33,000 IN CASH IN HIS CAB IS SPARED JAIL


A cabbie caught with more than £33,000 in cash in the back of his cab after police set up a sting operation in Perth has been spared jail. The Daily Record reports that Perth Sheriff Court was told that the under- cover surveillance was planned to combat drug dealing masterminded by an organised crime group from Liverpool. A team of four officers kept watch on a string of shops in Darnhall’s Glengarry Road - and it led to the arrest of 58- year-old David Worley. But he escaped a custodial sentence on 28 July after his lawyer said “undue pressure” had been exerted on him by the criminals. Sheriff J. Craig McSherry imposed a


66


high-end community payback order as a “direct alternative” to jail. Worley will have to complete 300 hours of unpaid work in the next 18 months after he admitted contravening the 2002 Proceeds of Crime Act. He admitted that on September 10, 2020, he received “criminal property” in the form of cash - and then concealed and transferred it. Depute fiscal Marie Irvine told the court: “Over a period of months, intelli- gence was received by Police Scotland that a Liverpool-based organised crime group was concerned in the supply of controlled drugs.” Worley was the target of the covert operation and he was identified as the


driver of a Ford Focus travelling north on the A9, towards Perth. It then parked near the shops and another car - a Suzuki Swift, with two men in it - drove past the Focus. A man in the Suzuki was “seen to acknowledge” the accused before that vehicle drove into Glenshee Terrace. “One of the males emerged and walked towards the blue Ford Focus,” added the fiscal. He was carrying a bag over his shoulder and was seen entering the back of the Focus. He left the vehicle no longer in possession of the bag.” Solicitor David Sinclair said the accused, of Barrymore Road, Liverpool, was a first offender and had driven taxis for 26 years.
