Banker jailed for inside job

Midweek Sport - - FRONT PAGE -

A BANK man­ager who helped plan an armed rob­bery at her own branch was one of six jailed for a to­tal of 73 years.

Christabelle Amoah, 28, de­lib­er­ately timed putting out rub­bish at her branch of the Hal­i­fax so that two men armed with hand­guns could force their way in through the back door and take £100,000 in cash.

The two men, Wayne Se­faah, 27, and Lee Palmer, 33, were dis­guised as work­men as part of the ‘inside job’.

They threat­ened staff and ter­ri­fied cus­tomers at the bank in Mitcham, south Lon­don, and forced them to lie on the floor while a mem­ber of staff was or­dered at gun­point to open the door to the counter and safe area.

At Kingston Upon Thames Crown Court, Amoah was jailed for 12 years for con­spir­acy to rob.
