Female carer from Cobham jailed for three years

46 year old Monica Watson has been jailed for three years after she helped herself to £31,609.24 from the elderly lady she was caring for.

At the sentencing at Kingston Crown Court today, the court heard that between October 2015 and May 2016 whilst assisting an 85-year-old lady with day to day tasks and errands, she abused her position.

She then used the money to fund a lavish lifestyle of endless lunches, buying clothes, frequent tennis sessions as well as taking holidays in Portugal and in the UK.

Watson was arrested in June 2016 after the victim’s family noticed unusual banking transactions on their mother’s account and large sums of money being withdrawn on a regular basis.

After a long and thorough investigation she was charged with seven counts of fraud.

The jury returned a unanimous verdict of guilty to all seven counts and she was remanded in custody until her sentencing today.

Two former security guards found guilty of a conspiracy to steal £7 million

32 year old Mohammed Naheen Siddique and 40 year old Ranjeev Singh from Slough staged a robbery in an attempt to steal 19 bags of cash due to be transported to the Bank of Ireland.

The pair, who both worked for the cash handling company Loomis, were caught as the result of an investigation by the Met’s Flying Squad.

The court heard Siddique and Singh were working together on the same shift in March, and had been tasked with picking up £7 million in cash from the British Airways cargo depot at Heathrow Airport.

Analysis of CCTV footage revealed that, shortly after the money was picked up at 8.30am, the Loomis van pulled over outside the security gates to allow Singh to use the toilet.

This was an unauthorised stop and against all Loomis protocols and instructions, which stated that if an operative needed such a stop then he/she should call into the control centre so that closer monitoring of the van could occur.

While Singh was in the toilet, Siddique drove off and then parked it a short distance away in Feltham.

Singh took 20 minutes to raise the alarm with his employer and, when asked whether he had tried to contact Siddique, he said he did not have his phone.

The delay in alerting the Loomis control centre enabled Siddique, who was helped by another man, to unload the bags of cash into a white Transit van parked in West View.

In order to create the impression of a robbery, Siddique’s hands and ankles were bound with cable ties and he was left on a service road near the M40 in Buckinghamshire.

Siddique was later found by a member of the public.

Flying Squad detectives arrested Singh and Siddique after suspicions were raised by Singh’s inexplicable delay in raising the alarm and Siddique’s inconsistent account of what had happened.

During an interview in which he was being treated as a witness, Siddique claimed the theft had been organised by a man who had threatened to burn his house down.

However, analysis of a mobile phone found on Singh, despite his claims that he didn’t have one, revealed that it had been used to call Siddique during the period the cash was stolen.
