Five men have been jailed for more than 13 years at the Old Bailey after pleading guilty to their part in robbing a cash-in-transit guard in Croydon and an attempted robbery in East Ham.

Mark Buchanan (pictured below) and Nathan Clarke-Greyson swiped a cash box containing £12,000 from a security guard outside a Co-Op in Lower Addiscombe Road, Addiscombe, and got away in a car.

But the 21-year-old and 24-year-old were arrested later that day, on July 25 last year, when police stopped the vehicle and found them and the cash box inside.

On June 26 the previous year, after being spotted by cash-in-transit guards at a bank in East Ham and chased by police Myles Harris and Adrian Markland were arrested.

Clarke-Greyson and 23-year-old Nathan Rose-Bennett (pictured below) got away but a police dog unit traced items of clothing discarded by the pair and after DNA was recovered from the clothing they were both arrested.

Sentence? What a joke. 13yrs divided by five. Should have been 13yrs EACH for these crimes. What is the point of the police putting their safety at risk for this pathetic sentencing. They must have been laughing all the way to jail.
