'Model Pupil' Jailed For Bank Robbery

A 15 year old schoolboy has been sentenced to 40 months in a Young Offenders' Institution for robbing a bank in Liverpool with a fake gun.

The teenager, who we can't name for legal reasons, was described as a "model pupil''. 

He was motivated by greed when he carried out the raid, Liverpool Youth Court heard last month. 

The boy was sentenced at Liverpool Crown Court after pleading guilty to holding up a branch of Barclays bank in Breck Road on Friday September 20 and making off with more than £2,000. 

He was turned over to the police by his mother, who found a stash of cash, stained with dye, and a fake firearm in his bedroom.
