Wednesday, August 21, 2019- A Kenyan man has been slapped with 15 years jail term for stealing jewelry worth £441,640(Sh55 million)

The convict, Victor Okumu, 38, was jailed at York Crown Court to 10 years and six months and a further five years on license following his release.

 The judge who sentenced him, described the convict as a “very dangerous man who took whatever he wanted.”

Okumu committed the crime on March 11, 2019, when he is reported to have entered the jewelry shop wearing a blue boiler suit and crash helmet with the visor down.

According to Police report, Okumu wedged the door open and pushed a box into an attendant before jumping over the counter. He then took jewelry from the window display and left.

Okumu spent the following days traversing the country trying to evade police but was arrested at a hotel, almost a week later.

He was found with rings from the jewelry shop which was half of what he had stolen.
It has also emerged that Appeal Court judges recommended that Okumu be deported to Kenya in 2009 for robbing a woman in her own home.
