Mobile Phone Robber - Nabbed & Guilty

Mobile Phone Robber: Mark Crawford from Eldon Road, Luton has been found guilty of three armed robberies in Houghton Regis. He had disguised himself with a bandana and sunglasses as he stole mobile phones and an iPod whilst armed with a knife and an imitation firearm. His youngest victim was 14 years of age. The offences happened in Parkside Drive on April 2nd, Sandringham Drive on April 28th and again in Parkside Drive on April 30th. He will return to Luton Crown Court to be sentenced on December 7th.


Local Liberal Democrat Councillor, Alan Winter, "I am so pleased that this case has been solved. This has been a big worry to our residents on Parkside estate, especially. It shows that detectives work hard to solve crime, and do get results. People should still not rest easy, however. Keep you phones hidden away, don't be alone if you can help it, and use http://www.immobilise.com/
to register your phone so that you can be reunited with it should you lose it and it be found."
