Gypsy conmen trapped by pizza
A GANG of travelling conmen have been jailed after police caught them getting a takeaway pizza.
The four fraudsters travelled the country in caravans swindling elderly victims out of at least £19,000 in life savings for bogus drainage and gardening work.
Officers traced them using mobile phone data when they rang Domino’s to order a pizza delivery to their caravans.
Wayne Smith, 30, Llewellyn Smith, 39, James Smith, 33, and Barney Cummins, 34, pleaded guilty of conspiracy to commit fraud.
At Newport Crown Court Wayne Smith, of Redhill, Surrey, was jailed for five years and Cummins, of Thurrock, Essex, was sentenced to four.
James Smith and Llewellyn Smith, both of Tredegar, near Newport, South Wales, were jailed for 14 months and one year respectively.
