A 27-year-old woman has been sentenced to four and a half years in prison following an armed robbery in Stainforth

February 15, 2013, 4:35 pm

Yesterday (Thursday, 14 February) a 27-year-old woman was sentenced to four-and-a-half years for an armed robbery committed in January 2013.

The incident took place on the evening of Thursday, 10 January 2013, at a newsagents on Thorne Road, Stainforth.

Police were called to the premises after a woman entered the store, demanded money from the till and threatened staff with a black imitation handgun.

As the members of staff were unable to open the till, the woman grabbed ten pouches of tobacco valued at £60 and left the premises.

The staff involved were left shaken but uninjured.

At Sheffield Crown Court yesterday, Simone Ginette Larner, 27, from Stainforth, was sentenced to four-and-a-half years in jail for armed robbery.

DC Michelle Thompson said “The sentencing at court is a true reflection of the seriousness of this crime. By making threats with an imitation handgun, the incident was particularly terrifying for the staff involved, who were thankfully, not physically injured.”
