Bournemouth Man Jailed For Axe Robbery
A Bournemouth man has been sent to jail after admitting he carried out an armed robbery in Wimborne.
Paul Harvey, 43, pleaded guilty at Bournemouth Crown Court to robbery and possession of an offensive weapon and was sentenced to three years four months in prison.
The court heard that at 3pm on Sunday 27 April 2014 Harvey entered the Leigh Park convenience store wearing a hat and scarf to cover his face and demanded money from a male member of staff.
Initially the staff member thought it was a joke but Harvey then repeated the demand while brandishing an axe.
After the shop assistant handed him £1200 in cash notes Harvey left the store.
Firearms officers located and arrested Harvey less than 10 minutes later by the river near to the shop.
Detective Constable Leo Glendon, of Bournemouth and Poole CID, said:
“It is fortunate that there were no injuries as a result of this incident.
“I welcome the sentence given and hope it shows potential offenders the serious way in which criminality is viewed by the courts.”
Dorset & Wiltshire Fire Service are inspecting almost 250 high rise blocks, and most are in Bournemouth and Poole.
Alexander Worth from Kings Worthy died last year after the supercar he was in hit fencing in North Warnborough.
Tests at Horatia House and Leamington House, after the Grenfell fire, revealed a fire risk.
