Gang Members Use Angle Grinder to Break Into Post Office

West Midland Police released video on March 11 of gang members attempting to rob a Sandwell, England, post office ATM machine on September 1, 2016, using an angle grinder, a circular saw, a sledgehammer and a crow bar.

Police reports said the men were unsuccessful and attempted to escape in a stolen powder-blue Audi. They abandoned the car and were found by police shortly thereafter, hiding in a hedgerow in Bartley Green.

The four men admitted conspiracy to commit burglary and were sentenced at Birmingham Crown Court on Friday, March 10. Adrian Peach, 29, and Simon Phillips, 38, admitted to another burglary from June and were sentenced to eight years in jail. Dennis Carr, 38, and Terry McMahon, 33, were sentenced to six years.
