A ‘very dangerous man’ who carried out a series of armed robberies at a bookmakers and post offices in Bexley and Dartford has been jailed.
Michael McClusky, 31 , was sentenced to 10 years imprisonment after he pleaded guilty to three counts of robbery. McClusky will serve seven years imprisonment and a further seven years on license.
The court was told that McClusky along with an accomplice entered various commercial premises in possession of axes, threatening staff and stealing money and other items.
Detective Sergeant Ian Barnard, South East Command Unit CID said: “McClusky is a very dangerous man with a complete disregard for the law. McClusky was already out on licence at the time he committed these offences. His conviction is a joint effort by the Met and Kent police, with the investigation led by officers from the Met and Kent police able to spot the vehicle and immediately detain McClusky. I am glad that a lengthy custodial sentence has been handed down and this criminal is off the streets and is unable to inflict any further violence.”
His Honour Judge Shorrock of Woolwich Crown Court said, “McClusky has a poor attitude to society and see’s offending as a normal port of life. McClusky poses a high risk of harm to members of the public and the public must be protected from him”.
