COOP ROBBER JAILED

A 41-year-old man who robbed a Co-op store in Long Eaton last summer was jailed at Nottingham Crown Court on Friday 11th March. Modou Ndow, of Westwood Road, Sneinton, Nottingham, was sentenced to 21 years in connection with the eight robberies, which took place at co-operative stores in Sneinton, Radford, Carlton, Sherwood, Lowdham, Carrington and Long Eaton between November 2009 and June 2010.

He was arrested by detectives from Nottinghamshire Police last June following the robbery at the co-op on College Street Long Eaton, and was subsequently charged with the offences. In the first five robberies, Ndow threatened staff with a knife before stealing cash, but was carrying a handgun during the robbery at Long Eaton. .
