One of Cambridgeshire's oddest traditions gets under way this morning...
Pair Jailed For Brackley Ramraid
Two men have been jailed for a total of 16 years after carrying out a ramraid and robbery in Brackley.
Adam Lewis, 27, (left) and Michael Sherry, 31, (right) both of Banbury, were sentenced at Northampton Crown Court yesterday, for their part in the robbery which took place on Wednesday, 3 September 2014.
Lewis pleaded guilty to seven charges including; aggravated taking without consent of the vehicle used in the incident, burglary, GBH, ABH, robbery of a motor vehicle, dangerous driving and failing to provide a breath specimen, and was sentenced to eight years and six months.
Sherry pleaded guilty to aggravated taking without consent of the vehicle involved in the incident and burglary of the Co-op; he was sentenced to five years and four months.
Detective Inspector Phil Mills, from Daventry and South Northants CID, said: “I welcome the sentence handed down by the judge in this case.
“This was a particularly nasty incident which saw two members of the public injured as they intervened, one of them significantly.
“The incident had a big impact on many people in Brackley with Lewis and Sherry showing little regard for their many victims in their pursuit to steal cigarettes, committing a multitude of crimes along the way.
“I would like to thank those people who stepped-in for their bravery, especially the two members of the public who were injured as a result of their actions.”
