FIVE Crewe men involved in a plot to kidnap a Polish man from his Blackburn home have been jailed for a total of more than 13 years.
The terrified victim was taken from his home and bundled into the boot of a car.
Victim Lukasz Radzikowski managed to escape when the car stopped on the Haslington Bypass.
Four defendants had admitted a charge of conspiracy to kidnap Mr Radzikowski. They were: Tomasz Czubek, 28, of Lawton Street, Crewe, who was jailed for two and a half years; Kizysztof Gryszkiewicz, 33, of Wistaston Road, Crewe who got three years and two months jail, Lukasz Romanski, 22, of Lord Street, Crewe, who was given two and a half years and Rafal Lipinski, 23, also of Wistaston Road who also got two and a half years, plus two weeks on top for a bail offence.
Two other men had denied the charge. The judge directed the jury to find Przemek Kustasz, 23, of Catherine Street, Crewe not guilty. Filip Nowak, 21, of Wistaston Road, Crewe, was convicted and sentenced to three years.
