THREE men who injured a Scarborough jeweller during a £50,000 raid have been jailed.

James Millea, 33, Timothy Langford, 22, of Staxton and Jonathan Pell, 21, of Nelson Street, were caged after targeting Rosh Jewellers, in Huntriss Row, in December 2010.

Two men, one who is still unknown, armed themselves with a 12 inch knife and hammer, before bursting into the business and attacking owner David Haywood.

Langford waited in an alley in his sister’s van and Pell sat in McDonald’s as a look-out.

Mr Haywood suffered cuts to his hands as he tried to grab the knife and a fractured shoulder.

The men smashed display cabinets to steal valuable goods before Mr Heywood activated a security “smoke cloak” and the raiders fled.

Millea was jailed for nine-and-a-half years, Pell for eight years and Langford for five years and four months.

Rosh has since moved to different premises in Huntriss Row.
