Criminals jailed for cash in transit attack

Written by Elizabeth Smythe on .

'Bungling' cash in transit robbers have been jailed after setting their safe house - and stolen money - on fire, liverpoolecho.co.uk reports.

The two criminals were forced to give themselves up to the police as their house in Cherry Lane, Walton was engulfed in flames.

19-year old Michael O'Grady and 21-year old William Hunter both received prison sentences for their part in the brutal attack on a cash in transit security guard as he delivered £20,000 of cash to a bank in Kirkby last June.

O'Grady stabbed the guard in the arm before stealing the money and getting away in a stolen taxi, hiding the money at the safe house, which was where O'Grady's girlfriend lived.

However, when armed officers begin to encircle the property, the two men took drastic action: they began to pile the stolen banknotes down the toilet!

In sheer desperation, they filled the bath with money and set fire to it but when the house was consumed by smoke, the men were forced to surrender!

According to merseymagazine.co.uk, O'Grady was sentenced by Judge Thomas Teague QC at Liverpool Crown Court to nine years in prison while Hunter received 32 months for handling stolen goods.

In handing down sentence, Judge Teague called the theft to be "a professional, organised example of gang crime."
