A CREWE man has been jailed indefinitely for an armed robbery at a bank.
Warren Patrick Edwards, 37, of Lord Street, was told he would serve a minimum of six years of an indefinite sentence before being considered for release under the Dangerous Offenders Act.
Edwards appeared at Knutsford Crown Court on Thursday where he admitted robbery and possession of an imitation fire arm.
He and two other men, who were not charged, burst into at the Natwest Bank on Nantwich Road with an imitation gun and demanded cash from a cashier shortly after 2pm on October 13, 2005.
They made their escape through the back of the building.
A police chase involving officers on foot, patrol cars and a police spotter plane tracked Edwards to a house on Lord Street. He was arrested 45 minutes later and a quantity of cash was recovered.
Detective Inspector Ian Goodwin, at Crewe Special Investigation Unit, said: 'Due to the
severity of the offence we are pleased with the outcome and we are also pleased with the response of the courts.
'It shows that if people are found guilty they will suffer the consequences.'
