Four jailed over ATM theft

Four men have been jailed for the theft of an ATM machine.

The offenders used a stolen teleporter to smash open a wall at the McColls store in Louth Road, Holton-le-Clay and removed the cash machine in the early hours of October 11.

They were arrested and charged following a pursuit by officers from Lincolnshire Police and Humberside Police.

The four men are:

Thomas Boswell, 32, of French Street, Bentley, Doncaster

Ashley Squires, 36, of Huthwaite Lane, Old Blackwell, Alfreton

Alan Pearson, 33, of Tolney Lane, Newark

Jordan Herring, 38, of The Homestead, Bentley, Doncaster

All four admitted burglary and aggravated vehicle taking at Lincoln Crown Court.

Pearson also admitted charges of assaulting an emergency worker and criminal damage to a police car. He was jailed for four years and eight months, and was also banned from driving for 40 months.

Squires was jailed for four years and four months and banned from driving for 36 months.

Boswell and Herring were each jailed for four years each and both banned from driving for 38 months.

DS Calley Murray of Lincolnshire Police said: “The sentencing is a clear message to those offenders who believe that they can avoid detection by committing crimes in different forces. We are relentless in our pursuit of criminals involved in serious organised crime and there are no borders.

“The success of this investigation lies solely with the teamwork completed by both Lincolnshire and Humberside police officers and the support of the local community.”

A hearing to consider confiscation of their assets under the Proceeds of Crime Act was adjourned until 2020.
