Two Jailed For False Imprisonment In MK
Two men have been sentenced to seven years in prison each for false imprisonment and conspiracy to commit robbery in Milton Keynes.
Shannon Jeffers, aged 24, of no fixed abode, and Daryl Cable, aged 23, of Kingsley Road, Luton (pictured) were convicted of the charges at Aylesbury Crown Court on 6 November after being found guilty following a four day trial. They were sentenced to seven years each for both offences at the same court on the same day.
On Saturday 26 April 2014 Jeffers and Cable attended a property in The Gables, Wolverton where they claimed the residents had stolen some crack cocaine and some heroin from them. They demanded cash and threatened the two men, aged 36 and 40, with a carving knife and boiling water mixed with jam. They tied up one of the victims and tried to trap them both in the flat. After a few scuffles one man managed to escape and raise the alarm and police attended.
Det Con John Swallow, the officer dealing with the case, said:
"This was a vicious and sustained attack on these men, threatening them and attempting to imprison them in the flat. I am pleased that the jury has found them guilty and now these individuals are off the streets for a long time."
