A robber has been jailed for three years for a raid on a phone shop in Rotherham.

Samir Youcef Barlow, aged 23, of Cygnet Way, Hayes, London, was part of a gang which struck at Carphone Warehouse at Parkgate in March last year.

The gang fled with £10,000 worth of electrical items.

Barlow was caught after a member of staff from the shop spotted an online news story about a similar phone shop robbery in Kidderminster, spotted Barlow’s face and contacted the police.

DC Scott Walker said Barlow was a ‘professional criminal’.
