Two men jailed for robbery at a Coalville shop

Both were found guilty of robbery and possession of a knife.

Two men have been jailed following a robbery at a Leicestershire store earlier this year.

Levi Muttock and Rhys Chan were both convicted of robbery at a store in Broom Leys Road, Coalville.

On the 13th of March, three people were reported to have entered the store in Coalville with one staying at the door while two approached members of staff armed with knives.

The suspects pushed the staff and demanded cash from the safe but as this couldn't be accessed they stole cash from the tills along with bottles of alcohol and cigarettes.

Muttock, 32, had been found guilty of robbery and possession of a knife in relation to the incident on the 13th of March and was also guilty to an additional charge of robbery and possession of a knife following an incident that happened a week before.

Chan, 29, had previously pleaded guilty to robbery and possession of a knife.

Muttock, was sentenced to seven years and four months imprisonment while Chan was jailed for three years and 10 months.

Detective Inspector Kevin Hames said: "Muttock and Chan had no consideration for anyone else, they were only interested in their own gain. Their actions left shop workers terrified and I have no doubt it has had a lasting impact on all the people involved.

“Detailed enquiries and witness accounts meant we were able to identify Muttock and Chan and their involvement. Thank you to everyone who assisted us in doing this and bringing the defendants to court.”
