Information sent on behalf of Derbyshire Constabulary

A man has been jailed after brandishing a kitchen knife and stealing cash from a New Mills shop in May this year.

Joseph Murray entered the Go Local Extra store in Albion Road on 4 May and threatened cashiers with a knife whilst demanding money.

He then left the store with several hundred pounds.

The 21-year-old of Etherow Avenue, Romiley, in Stockport was captured on local CCTV footage entering and leaving the store and was identified following a media appeal for information.

He appeared at Manchester Minshull Street Crown Court on 21 October and was sentenced to 44 months imprisonment.

Murray had previously admitted charges of robbery and possession of a bladed article in public place.

Detective Staff Investigator, Georgina Kirk who led the investigation said:

“No one should have to feel scared in their place of work or while they are out shopping for a pint of milk.

“Murray went in to the Go Local Extra store that day with the intention to frighten and intimidate, and his actions have a had a profound effect on those he threatened.

“I hope that this sentence is some comfort to the members of staff who encountered him that day.

“I would also like to thank them for their bravery and co-operation throughout this investigation.”
