Daniel Robertson

The armed robbery happened at London Road Stores in Chatteris on October 31st last year.

Robertson and an unknown accomplice went into the shop before threatening the shopkeeper.

Robertson stood in the doorway pointing a pump action gun at the shopkeeper while the other man went behind the behind the till and threatened the employee with a pistol.

They got away with cash from the till and £250 worth of cigarettes.

The pair then got away in a car driven by Caley.

A passer-by saw the men getting away and made a note of the car's registration number, before armed officers searched the area.

Robertson and Caley were arrested shortly afterwards, however the guns were never found.

David Caley

Detective Constable Jon Edwards said: "This was a terrifying experience for the shopkeeper and I hope today’s result will allow him some closure.

These sentences should send out a clear message to others that this type of crime will not be tolerated and we will use all of the tactics available to us to ensure offenders are caught."
