Luke Smart, of Oxford Road, Ipswich, appeared at Ipswich Crown Court on Tuesday 9 July, where he was sentenced after pleading guilty at an earlier hearing to the following offences: Robbery, attempted robbery, two counts of possession of a knife, handling stolen goods and fraud by false representation.
Smart was charged on Friday, May 3rd, in connection three incidents including holding a knife and entering Springs in Spring Road, Ipswich, and demanding cigarettes from the shopkeeper.
Between his arrest and sentencing, Smart chose to work with Suffolk Police’s Operation Converter Team and went on to admit four other offences including two dwelling burglaries, a robbery and a theft from the person.
Smart was visited while on remand in prison after he was charged with six offences.
