Three men found guilty of the biggest robbery in Britain – £14 million in jewelry
Three men have been found guilty in the involvement of the “biggest robbery in the British legal history”. Carl Wood, William Lincoln and Hugh Doyle were found guilty of being involved in the robbery of jewels from safes at Hatton Garden, London.
The robbery had occurred between Easter Saturday and Sunday of last year when thieves broke into the central safes of London and stole jewels from 72 deposit boxes worth a total value of £14 million.
The thieves had successfully entered the building after trenching a big hole and in the safes, open boxes and powerful tools were found, including drills for concrete cutting used by the thieves.
Another man, John Harbinson – the nephew of Lincoln – was not found guilty of involvement in the robbery. Four men have already admitted planning the robbery.
