Gang of robbers who carried out 'meticulously planned' raids across Greater Manchester have been jailed.

20:05 |

In Concert With Greater Manchester Police BandGang of robbers who carried out 'meticulously planned' raids across Greater Manchester have been jailed.

In the space of three weeks they targeted cash-in-transit deliveries at two garages and a bank.

They escaped with cash in two raids but in another fled when they spotted a surveillance van.

They were caught after Operation Countess was launched by Salford police and the force's Robbery Unit aimed at combating organised crime.

Undercover police put the gang under surveillance.At Minshull Street Crown Court, Ricky Collins, who also used the surname Applegate, 25, of Lodgepole Close, Salford, admitted two counts of robbery, burglary and theft of a vehicle. 

Amaron Maddix , 22, of Amersham Steet, Salford, was found guilty of burglary, attempted robbery and possessing an offensive weapon following a trial.
Collins was jailed for 10 years and Maddix for five years. 

Scott McCaffrey , 28, of no fixed address, was convicted of robbery and jailed for four years at an earlier hearing. He has now also been ordered to repay £5,100 as part of a Proceeds of Crime hearing.

The spree started on June 5 last year when Collins and Maddix broke into a house on Derby Road, Fallowfield. 

They were captured on CCTV unloading stolen items from two cars, a Volkswagen Golf and Mini also stolen in the burglary, into Maddix's house. 

Three days later Collins and McAffrey stole several thousand pounds during a cash-in-transit robbery at the Shell petrol station on Trafford Road, Salford. 

Two days after that Collins stole a Honda motorbike from outside a house on Deepdale Drive, Pendlebury. 

On June 18 Collins stole a cash box containing several hundred pounds after threatening a security guard with a screwdriver during a cash-in-transit robbery at the Lexus car showroom on Bury New Road, Salford. 

On June 30, Maddix and another man, both on a stolen Honda Motorbike, approached the Barclays bank on Blackburn Street, Radcliffe, where a cash delivery was taking place. 

A 'Hawk eye' surveillance vehicle and police car were nearby prompting the pair to ride off.
