Bomb de­tec­tor con­man jailed

Midweek Sport - - NEWS -

A CON­MAN who sold “use­less” bomb de­tec­tors for thou­sands of pounds around the world has been jailed for seven years.

Gary Bolton, 47, of Chatham, Kent, sold the phoney de­vices to in­ter­na­tional clients for up to £10,000 each, boast­ing of their abil­ity to de­tect ex­plo­sives.

But the equip­ment, which cost less than £5 to make, was use­less.

At the Old Bai­ley the judge said that Bolton had “dam­aged Bri­tain’s rep­u­ta­tion.”
