Two men involved in a ram raid style attempted burglary at Booths in Milnthorpe have been jailed a total of nearly 13 years.
James Patton, 30, from Durham, was sentenced to three years nine months and Dean Neasham, 40, of no fixed address, was sentenced to nine years at Carlisle Crown Court Wednesday (19th December).
The burglary occurred between 1.15am and 1.30am in the early hours of Saturday 25th November.
The pair used an SUV vehicle to break into the store in an attempt to steal the ATM within.
The two were arrested hours later and are now facing lengthy sentences.
Detective Constable Ian Garrett said:
“These sentences shows that Cumbia is not an easy target we take these types of crimes very seriously. I hope this case serves as a warning to those tempted to commit similar offences.”
