Reigo Janes, 27, listened to the case through an interpreter after admitting two counts of robbery and two of possessing an imitation firearm. The court heard he was one of four men to target Berry's in April 2006. He carried a hammer, two carried what are believed to be handguns and staff were said to be terrified.They fled with £335,000 worth of watches, including Rolexes, before dropping their weapons – ball bearing guns – at the door.Three months later Janes was part of a gang to target jewellers in Manchester. The raid lasted 29 seconds and yielded watches worth £230,000. They were hidden in a nearby bar toilet's suspended ceiling and picked up by another gang member.Janes was caught through DNA matches after West Yorkshire Police widened their hunt. He was brought back to the UK and admitted the crimes saying he was picked because he was homeless, in debt and had a criminal record. He was paid the equivalent of £3,500 for the Leeds robbery in Estonian kroon.
Sentencing him the recorder of Leeds Judge Peter Collier QC said: "I accept you were not the ringleader but you were an able and willing recruit. You did the dirty work."Speaking after the case Det Insp Lloyd Batley of West Yorkshire Police said: "We were the first force to make the link between the robberies and the gang in Estonia. The raids were meticulously planned and ruthlessly executed. They were in and out in seconds. Janes was sentenced to 12 years to run concurrently for the robberies and five years concurrently for firearms offences.
