Following a Thames Valley Police investigation, a man has been sentenced in connection with a robbery that happened in Bletchley.
On Thursday 30 September, Andrew O’Grady, aged 48, of Granby Court, Bletchley, was sentenced at Aylesbury Crown Court to three years and nine months’ imprisonment.
He pleaded guilty of one count each of robbery and theft. One count of having an article with a blade or point was ordered to lie on file.
On New Years Eve last year, O’Grady entered Tesco in Melrose Avenue multiple times throughout the day, taking alcohol. The last time he entered the shop, a security guard confronted O’Grady who then pulled a knife from the waistband of his trousers.
O’Grady was charged on 1 January 2021.
Investigating officer, PC David Smith, based at Milton Keynes police station, said: “I am pleased that O’Grady pleaded guilty to these offences and has now been sentenced for his behaviour.
“I believe that this sentence shows that the action taken by Mr O’Grady won’t be tolerated.
“Thames Valley Police work tirelessly to ensure that offenders are brought to justice and will continue to do so.”
