Two security guards have been jailed after staging a 7 million fake robbery from their own cash-in-transit van outside Heathrow Airport. One of the pair was found several hours later tied up and left by a roadside, with the van abandoned and the cash missing in a bid to make it look like the two men were victims. Loomis employees Mohammad Siddique, 32, and Ranjeev Singh, 40, were each jailed for six-and-a-half years after they were found guilty of conspiracy to steal at Kingston Crown Court earlier in October.
Another man, Rafaqat Hussain, who helped Siddique and Singh organise the heist, and was said to be “at the heart of the conspiracy”, was sentenced for 10 years and three months after pleading guilty in September to helping stage the robbery, launder the money and commit burglary. The money has never been recovered. During the trial, prosecutor Sandip Patel QC said the “audacious theft” was worthy of a Hollywood script and “carefully planned and executed”.
“It was an audacious theft carefully planned and executed and you may think it would make a Hollywood movie script, they would call it the ‘Heathrow Heist’ if anyone wanted to write a script about it.”
How the heist unfolded
On March 14, a security van was loaded with 26 bags of cash belonging to Credit Suisse at the BA cargo depot at Heathrow Airport. Siddique drove it out of the security gates of the depot with Singh in the passenger seat. He then stopped the vehicle to allow Singh to take what was claimed to be a toilet break.
Siddique then drove off with the 7million in cash. Singh waited inside the toilet block for some time before raising the alarm. He claimed he could not contact anyone earlier as he had left his mobile phone in the vehicle.
The security van was later found abandoned with its engine still running in West View, Feltham, while Siddique was found a few hours later tied up and left by a roadside. When questioned by police he said he had been contacted weeks before the robbery by an unknown man at his home. He claimed the man threatened to burn his home down and forced him to take part in the plan.
Mobile phones revealed conspiracy links
Although Singh claimed he left his mobile phone in the van before it was driven off, it emerged he had a second phone all along, stored in his jacket pocket, which he used to speak to Siddique while he was in the toilet. Mobile phone data was also presented by the prosecution to the court to show that Siddique had been in contact with his co-conspirators on the day of the heist and was directly involved. Secret recordings made by a device planted by police in Hussain’s car caught him admitting “I had all the cash, 7 million” and also heard him boast that he could buy any car he wanted with the stolen cash.
He said: “Mate it was a job, I f****** robbed 7 million.
“I want to lie low, I could buy a Ferrari, I want to chill for about six months, buy a couple of houses, flip them and make a bit of money.”
Sentencing the pair at Kingston Crown Court, Judge Stephen John told Siddique and Singh they “must now pay the price” after playing “for high stakes”. He called the staged robbery “a sophisticated operation which involved meticulous planning and execution”, in which Siddique and Singh “played (their) parts to perfection”. The court heard there are more people involved in the case that have not been identified.
Prosecutor Sandip Patel QC said someone with inside information would have been involved, Hussain knew that Siddique and Singh had been “assigned the Credit Suisse run well before they were officially told at around 7.15am that morning” after calling Siddique at 5.42am to make it clear that would be the day of the heist. A further man, Garry Carrod, was jailed for three-and-a-half years after pleading guilty to conspiracy to commit burglary. He and Hussain, along with Hussain’s wife Razvana Zeib, both of Chadwick Road, Slough, organised a house they wanted to buy with their share of the 7 million to be ransacked in an attempt to bring down the price.
An 88-year-old woman was selling the house to fund a place in a care home, but after it was flooded and vandalised, with windows broken, her failure to tell insurers she was not living there at the time of the burglary meant they failed to pay out. Carrod, 34, from Taplow, Buckinghamshire, has 74 previous convictions, including one for conspiracy to steal vehicles with Hussain, who has 64 previous offences to his name. Hussain’s wife Zeib, 35, will be sentenced at a later date after she plead guilty to conspiracy to money launder and commit burglary.
Shocking footage has emerged of a Marks & Spencer1 security guard appearing to body slam a Big Issue vendor after he refused to return to the store for questioning. Witnesses watched in disbelief as the pair wrestled on the floor outside the department store in Covent Garden, Central London. The homeless man can be heard on the video screaming get off me as he desperately tries to escape before being thrown to the cobbles like a rag doll.
He was heard howling in pain as store employees tried to haul him back inside but they let him go after the commotion drew a crowd.

Marks & Spencer condemned the behaviour as completely unacceptable and confirmed it is launching an immediate investigation. The dramatic video – filmed by a member of the public on a mobile phone – emerged on social media today. It shows the security guard trying to drag the man towards the store entrance with both arms pinned behind his back.
When he resists, the guard grabs him by the neck and pulls him to the pavement. He puts him in a headlock and says: Stop resisting, stop resisting.

He manages to free himself but as he is walking away the guard appears to rush up on him from behind and wrap both arms around his shoulders. Onlookers gasp as the man is hurled off the kerb and slammed into the concrete.
Another member of staff tries to block the camera with his hand and goes to assist his colleague. The security guard says get him inside and they start trying to drag him up off the ground.

The man filming says: What you doing, mate ? Oh, my days. A large crowd gathers on the other side of the street and staff eventually decide to release the man, saying: Don t come back.
It is not known what the man was accused of. A spokeswoman for Marks & Spencer confirmed the security guard no longer works for the company.

She added: We re very disappointed to see this footage.
“Nothing justifies this behaviour, it is completely unacceptable and is not tolerated at M&S.
This incident took place over a year ago but was not reported to us at the time.
“Nonetheless, we ve launched an immediate investigation into the incident.
This security guard no longer works on behalf of M&S and we are taking appropriate actions to ensure that this behaviour doesn t happen again. A spokeswoman for the Big Issue said: We are appalled by this shocking and apparently unprovoked attack on a vulnerable person. Big Issue sellers face all manner of hardship on the streets and are frequently subject to abuse, but we would hope that the premises of a major retailer would represent a safe environment.
As an organisation we’ve enjoyed a good relationship with Marks & Spencer over the years, so we sincerely hope this an isolated incident which will be treated as seriously as it deserves to be.
