‘The Heathrow Heist’: Security guards convicted for conspiracy to steal in 7 million staged robbery

Two “devious” security guards have been convicted for their part in the 7m “Heathrow Heist”.1

Mohammad Siddique, 32 and Ranjeev Singh, 40, both from Slough, who staged a robbery to steal bags of cash from the British Airways2 cargo depot at Heathrow Airport3 , have been found guilty.

It brought the three-week trial to an end on Thursday (October 5) at Kingston Crown Court.4

Deemed to be one of the biggest robbery plots in British history, the pair who worked for cash handling company Loomis abused their positions in an attempt to make off in a security van loaded with 19 bags of cash, on March 14 this year.

The pair were caught as the result of an investigation by the Metropolitan Police’s Flying Squad unit. CCTV recordings revealed shortly after the money was picked up at 8.30am, the van pulled over outside the security gates and Singh took a toilet break.

However this was an unauthorised stop and against company protocols that deem any such stop to be called into the control centre so the van can be closely monitored. Siddique drove off on his own and, with the help of another man, unloaded the bags into a white transit van parked in West View, Feltham , where the security van was later found abandoned.

A total of 19 bags of cash totalling 7m were missing from the vehicle. Siddique was found hours later, by a member of the public, his hands and ankles bound with cable ties and left on a service roads near the M40 in Buckinghamshire. Both men were arrested after Singh’s delay in alerting the control centre and Siddique’s inconsistent account of what happened.

When questioned by police as a victim, Siddique said he had been contacted weeks before by an unknown man who threatened to burn his house down.

However prosecution presented mobile phone data, from a cell found on Singh, which revealed it had been used to call Siddique during the time the cash was stolen. The phone analysis also revealed Rafaqat Hussain, 41, who previously pleaded guilty to conspiracy to steal, had been in regular contact with Singh on the day of the theft. Flying Squad detectives established Hussain had called a recovery driver at 9.24am on the day of the theft and the white Ford transit van had been taken to a nearby recycling centre where it was scrapped.

Hussain s wife Razvana Zeib was arrested and charged with conspiracy to commit money laundering after investigations revealed 900,000 had been transferred to a Pakistani bank account opened in her name.

Zeib, Hussain and another defendant, Gary Carrod, had organised for a house they wanted to buy with their share of the proceeds to be ransacked and burgled in an attempt to bring down the price. Siddique of Belgrave Road, Slough and Singh, of Grampian Way, Slough were both found guilty of conspiracy to steal. Rafaqat Hussain of Chadwick Road, Slough pleaded guilty to conspiracy to steal, conspiracy to burgle and conspiracy to commit money laundering at Kingston Crown Court on Monday September 11.

Hussain’s wife Razvana Zeib, 35, also pleaded guilty to conspiracy to burgle and conspiracy to commit money laundering at Kingston Crown Court on the same day.

Gary Carrod, 34 of Nursery Road, Taplow, pleaded guilty to conspiracy to burgle at Kingston Crown Court on Monday September 11. Detective Chief Inspector Mark Bedford, of the Met s Flying Squad, said: Although this was an organised theft involving months of planning, it would not have been possible without the calculating and devious actions of Singh and Siddique who abused their positions to subvert the secure processes put in place to prevent this type of offence.

The pair attempted to present themselves as victims of a robbery even going so far as arranging for Siddique to be tied up and left by a motorway to be found by innocent members of the public.

However, a swift and thorough investigation by the Flying Squad uncovered their lies, led to their accomplices being identified and ensured their successful conviction at court.

Both men are now likely to receive substantial custodial sentences reflecting their calculated abuse of their employer’s trust and the value of the monies stolen. The money from Credit Suisse bank was bound for the Bank of Ireland.

Helen Shaw from the CPS added: “Ranjeev Singh, Mohammad Siddique and Rafaqat Hussain staged this theft to steal 7m which has still not been recovered, crafting a plan to make it appear that they were victims.

Their elaborate plot quickly unravelled when inconsistencies in their story became apparent.

The prosecution used interrogation of mobile phone records and CCTV evidence to highlight the lies they told police, leading to today’s convictions.”

They will all be sentenced Wednesday October 18.
