(LONDON) Crown Court Report: A small Organised Criminal Network who arranged the importation of guns, ammunition and heroin have been sentenced to a total of 42 years’ imprisonment #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – July.26: A small Organised Criminal Network who arranged the importation of guns, ammunition and heroin have been sentenced to a total of 42 years’ imprisonment.

#AceDailyNews reports that an Organised Criminal Network has been sentenced for importation of six handguns and ammunition together with conspiracy to supply Class A drug (Heroin) following a joint operation with other forces ….

[A] Rocky Thompson, 35 (09.09.85) of no fixed address was sentenced to 15 years’ imprisonment after pleading guilty to conspiracy to sell/transfer firearms, conspiracy to possess ammunition and conspiracy to supply Class A drugs (heroin). 

[B] Shakeel Khaliq, 34 (07.03.87) of Ardenham Street, Aylesbury was sentenced to 14 years’ imprisonment after being found guilty following a trial at Southwark Crown Court of conspiracy to sell/transfer firearms. 

[C] Yetgin Eken, 47 (01.09.73) of no fixed address, was sentenced to 13 years’ imprisonment after being found guilty following a trial at Woolwich Crown Court of conspiracy to sell/transfer firearms and conspiracy to possess ammunition. 

[D] Mohammed Raqib Tariq, 24 (04.07.97) of Manor Road, Aylesbury was found guilty following trial at Southwark Crown Court of participating in the activities of an Organised Criminal Group. He was sentenced to a 21 month suspended sentence. 

All four were sentenced together on Friday, 16 July.

A trial for Khaliq and Tariq started in March 2021. They were convicted on Friday, 9 April at Southwark Crown Court.

A trial for Eken started on Wednesday, 24 May. He was convicted on Wednesday, 26 May at Woolwich Crown Court.

Thompson pleaded guilty to his offences on 17 February 2020 at Southwark Crown Court.

During the trial, the Court heard that on 4 September 2019, Rocky Thompson made a trip from the UK to Istanbul in Turkey. 

Over the following weeks, Thompson (the leader of the Organised Crime Network (OCN)), was in regular contact with Khaliq, his second in command, and a contact in Turkey. Over this time, they regularly discussed the purchase of firearms. 

Within weeks of Thompson’s visit to Turkey, Yetgin Ekin was tasked with transporting the firearms into the UK via Dover. He did this by hiding the weapons and ammunition in the back of his lorry before driving up to Thetford in Norfolk on 20 September 2019. 

Once the guns were in Thetford, a flurry of calls were made between Thompson, Khaliq and their contact in Turkey. Khaliq then arranged for Tariq to meet him (Khaliq) and Thompson in Aylesbury in order to collect the first shipment of guns from Eken. 

Tariq was entrusted to make a down-payment of cash for the firearms, ammunition and a quantity of heroin. The OCN then left Thetford to travel back to Aylesbury. 

On 23 September 2019, Eken left the UK in his lorry.

On 14 October 2019, he returned to the UK via Dover; he was driving the same lorry as last time he entered the country. 

Calls were made within the OCN – and to their contact in Turkey – shortly after Eken arrived in the UK. Officers now know these were calls to arrange the collection of guns, ammunition and heroin. 

Just after 15:00hrs, Tariq once again arrived at Thetford to meet with Eken. 

Eken was then seen to place a black holdall in the boot of Tariq’s vehicle. Once he placed the bag in the boot he removed a red/orange bag. It transpired that this red/orange bag contained £9,000. 

Once this handover was made, officers from the Met, Thames Valley and Norfolk moved into position, before executing three armed police arrests almost simultaneously. 

Armed officers from Thames Valley executed a warrant to arrest Thompson and his right-hand man, Khaliq at an address on Witham Way in Aylesbury. The address was being used as a safe house by the two men whilst the firearms were being collected. 

Norfolk and Suffolk armed officers arrested Tariq at a petrol station near Newmarket in Suffolk. In the boot of a car they found a black holdall which was zipped shut. Upon opening it, they found six pistols and 126 rounds of ammunition. They also found just over 1kg of heroin with a street value of approximately £100,000. 

Eken was arrested in his lorry. 

All of the suspects were taken into custody for interview. During his interview, Eken said he knew nothing about the firearms and believed he was dropping off food. However, his mobile phone contained images of the handguns dispelling his claims of not knowing what was being transported. 

Detective Chief Inspector Driss Hayoukane, the Senior Investigating Officer (SIO), said: “This was a complex and fast moving investigation relating to firearms being trafficked into the UK. I am proud of the professionalism, dedication and hard work of my team who we were able to build such a compelling case to dismantle this OCN, which was evidently acknowledged by Rocky Thompson who entered a guilty plea at the earliest opportunity: The sentencing of this OCN underlines the commitment of the Metropolitan Police and our law enforcement partners to tackle those involved in trafficking firearms. We are steadfast in our determination keep them off our streets. We were able to seize six lethal guns, ammunition and heroin, just after they were brought into the country. I am satisfied that this operation has kept the lethal weapons from the hands of criminals and this has prevented serious if not fatal shootings within London or further afield: This is a good example of collaborative work between different police jurisdictions. This operation would have not been successful but for the help of officers from Thames Valley Police and Norfolk and Suffolk Constabularies.”

(PAKISTAN) Court Report: Anti-Terrorism Court sentences man to life in prison for ‘blasphemy’ on social media #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – July.20: Most worrying is that censorship under Islamic blasphemy laws in Pakistan is no longer only confined to that country alone. It is now being exported globally.

#AceDailyNews says now that the freedom of speech is hanging on by a string in once-free societies, which are rapidly growing too comfortable with Sharia restrictions, reports out of Pakistan such as the one below are becoming less and less shocking to read that a man was sentenced to life imprison over blasphemy on social media,” 24 News, July 16, 2021:

Blasphemy cases are commonplace in Pakistan.

The Sharia values of Pakistan are corrupting free societies via relentless efforts by Islamic supremacists and the passive acceptance by globalists. Pakistan and Muslim Brotherhood-linked groups have worked for decades to erode the foundations of Western societies using the “Islamophobia” subterfuge — all in the name of expanding the influence of Islamic Sharia.

This isn’t the first time that Pakistan has gone after those it deems to be blasphemous on social media, and the country designates these “offenders” as “terrorists.”  In 2017, “in a first verdict of its kind, a Pakistani court sentenced a man to death for committing blasphemy on Facebook.” A “counterterrorism court” handed down the verdict on Taimoor Raza because of  “derogatory” remarks he was accused of making “about Sunni religious figures and the prophet of Islam’s wives.”

A Special Anti-Terrorism Court (SATC) Friday sentenced a culprit to life imprisonment under Section 295c for blasphemy on social media.

It is the first-ever case in which a culprit named Ibtisam Al-Mustafa was convicted for using social media to spread blasphemous material under Section 295c in Pakistan.

According to the 24NewsHD TV channel, the SATC Judge Shaukat Kamal Dar sentenced the culprit under the Anti-Terrorism Act (ATC) and other provisions of the Cyber Crime Act (CCA).

The court convicted the culprit with a total of 40 years imprisonment and a fine of Rs2.5 million, as well as his all movable and immovable properties, were also ordered to confiscate….

(NEVADA) Court Report: Hollywood Ripper Case: Judge calls crimes as ‘frightening & vicious’ as he was sentenced on Friday to death for mutilating two women #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – July.18: For crimes he called “vicious and frightening,” a judge on Friday gave a death sentence to a man prosecutors called “The Boy Next Door Killer” for the home-invasion murders of two women and the attempted murder of a third.

#AceDailyNews says ‘Hollywood Ripper’ Sentenced to Death for Killing and Mutilating Two Women According to The Associated Press

Michael Thomas Gargiulo listens during a sentencing hearing at Los Angeles Superior Court, Friday, July 16, 2021. (Damian Dovarganes / AP)

Victims’ family members wept as Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Larry P. Fidler handed down the sentence to 45-year-old Michael Thomas Gargiulo.

“Everywhere that Mr. Gargiulo went, death and destruction followed him,” Fidler said at the all-day hearing.

Gargiulo’s case received added attention because one of his victims was about to go on a date with actor Ashton Kutcher, who testified at the trial.

The sentencing, delayed by procedural issues and the pandemic, came nearly two years after a jury convicted Gargiulo and recommended his execution.

Gargiulo was found guilty of the 2001 murder of Ashley Ellerin, a 22-year-old fashion design student, in her Hollywood home as she prepared to go out with Kutcher. At the trial, Kutcher said that he was late to pick up Ellerin, who did not answer her door.

He looked inside to see blood stains that he thought were spilled wine. Prosecutors used him in their closing arguments, suggesting Ellerin was killed by another man who was jealous of Kutcher.

Ellerin was found with 47 stab wounds.

Her father, Michael Ellerin, who had been visiting his daughter from Northern California hours before she was killed, was one of several victims’ relatives who spoke at the hearing of their suffering as they waited years for justice.

He said he was tempted to imitate his wife Cynthia’s “mournful scream and primal wailing after finding out that Ashley had been murdered.”

“It marked the beginning of an altered, diminished, heartbreaking life,” he said.

Gargiulo was also convicted of the murder of 32-year-old Maria Bruno, a mother of four, in her home in El Monte, east of Los Angeles, in 2005. Bruno’s breasts were cut off and her implants were removed.

And he was found guilty of the attempted murder in 2008 of Michelle Murphy, who fought him off in her Santa Monica apartment, forcing him to flee and leave a trail of blood that also led to his eventual arrests for the other two killings. Murphy was the key witness at the trial.

“To this day, spending the night alone creates a world of fear in me,” Murphy said in court before the sentencing.

She cried as she talked about meeting the families of the two women who didn’t survive their attacks.

“How is it fair that one person’s actions can destroy the lives of so many?” she said.

Gargiulo is a former air conditioner and heater repairman, bouncer and aspiring actor whose nicknames from media outlets included “The Chiller Killer” and “The Hollywood Ripper” but was called “The Boy Next Door Killer” by prosecutors because he lived near the victims he stalked then attacked in their homes.

He spoke before his sentencing, angrily complaining that his lawyers prevented him from taking the stand in his defense.

“I’m going to death row wrongfully and unjustfully,” said Gargiulo, who sat in court in orange jail attire and face mask and showed no visible reaction to his sentencing. “I did want to testify and my fundamental choice was blocked.”

He is unlikely to be put to death anytime soon. California has not executed anyone since 2006 and Gov. Gavin Newsom has halted executions for as long as he is in office. But courts have been proceeding on the assumption that executions may one day resume.

Gargiulo is now expected to be extradited to Illinois for the 1993 killing of Tricia Pacaccio in his Illinois hometown. Prosecutors in his California trial were allowed to present extensive evidence from that case as they sought to establish a pattern and present Gargiulo as a serial killer.

(GRT MANCHESTER) Bolton Crown Court Report: The following were sentenced Wednesday (14 July 2021) after pleading guilty to conspiracy to supply drugs #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – July.16: Today’s sentencing is the result of a large scale investigation by GMP’s Serious and Organised Crime Group (SOCG) as part of Operation Billabong, targeting drug supply in Greater Manchester.

#AceDailyNews reports that seven men from Greater Manchester have been sentenced to over 51 years in jail for their roles in a class A and B drugs conspiracy, uncovered by a dedicated GMP operation

OpBillabong (1).png

Scott Round (03/09/1987), of Leader St, Wigan, was sentenced to 10 years imprisonment for conspiracy to supply class A and class B drugs.

Craig Walsh (30/10/1985), of Southern St, Wigan, was sentenced to a total of seven years and eight months for conspiracy to supply class A and B drugs.

Joshua Hill (15/04/1989), of Leader St, Wigan, was sentenced to nine years and six months imprisonment for conspiracy to supply Class A drugs.

Cameron Jones (10/05/1999), of Ormskirk Rd, Wigan, was sentenced to a total of eight years and six months imprisonment for conspiracy to supply class A drugs and wounding with intent.

Adam Tempest (18/09/1986), of Dicconson St, Standish, was sentenced to three years for conspiracy to supply Class A drugs.

Arran Parkin (08/12/1974), currently of HMP Manchester, who is currently serving a 14 year sentence for Conspiracy to commit GBH was also sentenced at an earlier date to nine years, to run consecutively to his current sentence. Parkin was found guilty after a five week trial at Bolton Crown Court.

Thomas Kavanagh (29/03/1985), was sentenced to four years at an earlier date while the investigation was still live and has already served his sentence in prison.

This brings the total prison sentence for all involved to 51 years and 8 months.

From September-November 2019, officers conducted a surveillance investigation culminating in a number of warrants being executed at numerous addresses across Greater Manchester, specifically in the Wigan area. The Police seized a significant amount of drugs, (namely cocaine, ketamine and cannabis), as well as cash, mobile phones and paraphernalia commonly used in the preparation and distribution of drugs.

It was during these warrants that the convicted were arrested and later charged.

Detective Chief Inspector Tony Norman, of GMP’s Serious and Organised Crime Group said: Today’s result is a success for the investigation team, CPS and Prosecution Counsel, who have all worked tirelessly to make sure that these men have been taken off the streets of Greater Manchester and are no longer able to contribute to the devastating drugs trade that sees communities living in fear and people’s lives destroyed: This was a well-funded group of criminals who used encrypted mobile devices which utilise increasingly sophisticated technology to attempt to hide messages from police: These devices are almost exclusively used for criminal activity but our specialist officers were able to infiltrate the devices to recover crucial evidence which helped convict these people: I hope todays sentence sends a strong message to anyone involved in this type of crime that we will catch up with you and do all we can to see that you are brought to justice.”

(WESSEX, U.K.) Court Report: A former choirmaster and teacher from Portsmouth has been sentenced to 40 years in prison today (30 June 2021) having been found guilty of sexually abusing 12 boys and a girl over a period of three decades #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – July.09: CASE NOTES: Stated he abused children as young as seven years old, as well as teenagers, between the early 1970s and 2000s: He spent time building relationships with young people, gaining their trust, making them feel special and good about themselves in order to exploit this apparent friendship by subjecting them to sexual abuse: Burgess created opportunities to abuse young children at school, in the vestry of churches during piano lessons, on choir trips across the country, in a rented garage, and in his car whilst purporting to provide lifts home.

(NOTTINGHAM, U.K.) Crown Court Report: A sexual predator who groomed his 14-year-old victim after meeting her in a caravan park was only stopped after the victim told her teacher what had gone on #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – July.09: Almost a year later, the schoolgirl told a teacher that she had been abused and the police were informed.Brown, 26, of Lindfield Road, Broxtowe, was then arrested and charged.

#AceDailyNews reports that a sexual predator was sentenced on Monday for two years in prison (SUPENDED) for a further two years over the abuse of teenager at caravan park: Miles Brown met the teenager in August 2017 while she was on her school holidays, gaining her trust before engaging in sexual activity – despite her being just a child.

At Nottingham Crown Court on Monday he pleaded guilty to two counts of engaging in sexual activity with a child: He was given a two-year prison sentence, suspended for two years, and put on the sex offenders’ register.

PC Emma McGregor, who led the investigation, said: “Brown groomed his young victim and engaged in sexual communication and activity with them to satisfy his own sexual perversion: I would like to thank the victim for coming forward and reporting this to us. This has been a lengthy investigation for the victim: We would encourage anyone who has been a victim of a sexual offence to please report no matter the length of time that has passed: It will be investigated and we will always look to work with the Crown Prosecution Service to bring offenders such as Brown to justice.”

101 is the number to call when you need to contact Nottinghamshire Police and it’s less urgent than a 999 call. Calls are free, no matter how long the call lasts.

(LEICESTER, U.K.) Insolvency Court Report: Woman has been sentenced after stealing a pensioners life savings in 2006 – 2007 and promising to repay it #AceNewsDesk reports

#AceNewsReport – July.02: Marston, 54, from Leicester, took in excess of £55,000 in 2006 and 2007, assuring the victim, now 83, that she would be repaid as Marston was set to become beneficiary of a trust fund when she turned 40 in 2007.

#AceDailyNews reports that Maria Marston took £55,000 from a friend, promising to repay it when she inherited a £3.5 million trust fund that didn’t actually exist.

The money was loaned on the promise that the funds would be returned when the trust fund was received. Marston added to the deception by also promising to pay interest and compensation, saying she would pay the victim back £500,000 in total.

Marston then told her victim, who does not wish to be named, that she was struggling to access the trust fund so the victim was advised to petition for Marston’s bankruptcy, believing it would help her access the money.

The bankruptcy petition sparked an Insolvency Service investigation and Marston was subsequently charged and pleaded guilty to 3 counts of obtaining property by deception and 3 counts of fraud by false representation.

Marston was sentenced to 2 years imprisonment suspended for 2 years at Leicester Crown Court today. She was also ordered to pay a further £18,173 in compensation after paying £50,000 earlier this month and to undertake 100 hours of unpaid work.

The victim said:

When the application to the court for a Trustee in Bankruptcy Order was made on my behalf, I was hoping either to have the debt repaid or for my friend, who had borrowed the money, to have assistance in securing access to her Trust Fund which she explained to the court was ‘locked’ by the banks.

It was a body blow to learn later from the Official Receiver that Maria Marston’s assets were nil. At that point I expected no further help, so I am extremely grateful to the Insolvency Service for their persistent and diligent work in bringing matters fully into the open.

By ensuring the unpaid debt was brought before the court, they have resolved for me a situation which had previously subjected both myself and my family to 15 years of stress, suffering and extensive financial hardship.

Glenn Wicks, chief investigator at the Insolvency Service, said:

Maria Marston used deception and fraudulent representations to take tens of thousands of pounds from her close friend. She knew that no trust fund existed but continued her fraud regardless, telling her elderly victim that the money would be paid on numerous occasions.

Marston’s victim has been left with no savings for many years as a result of her actions and this case shows we will pursue bankrupts through the criminal courts where appropriate.

Addtional Notes:

Maria Marston is from Leicester and her date of birth is February 1967.

Maria Marston pleaded guilty to three counts of obtaining property by deception and three counts of fraud at Leicester Crown Court on 17 May 2021 before HHJ Raynor.

Following this, Maria Marston signed a Bankruptcy Restriction Undertaking. The restrictions mean she cannot borrow more than £500 without disclosing her bankrupt status and cannot act as a company director without the court’s permission.

Detective Chief Inspector Griffin said: “The charge relates to the discovery of a number of hides at Larne and surrounding areas between March and September 2016. Undoubtedly these finds amounted to one of the most significant seizures of munitions in recent years in Northern Ireland. The sheer volume of weapons and component parts found in these hides had the capability to cause serious harm. The length of this sentence demonstrates the consequences for anyone who gets involved in this type of offending which there is no place for in today’s society: I would very much like to thank the members of the public who first alerted Police to these hides. This clearly demonstrates the vital role communities have in support of their Police Service: Today Northern Ireland is a safer place following the discovery of these hides. We will continue to work tirelessly to keep people safe and act on any information given to us by members of the public.

(NEW YORK) Justice Dept Court Report: Second Former Deutsche Bank Commodities Trader Sentenced to 12-months in Prison for Fraud Scheme #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – June.30: Based on the evidence presented at trial, Chanu, who was employed as a precious metals trader at Deutsche Bank in Singapore and, later in London, engaged in a scheme to defraud other traders on the Commodity Exchange Inc., which was a public exchange.

DOJ: A former commodities trader was sentenced Monday to 12 months and a day in prison for a scheme to commit wire fraud affecting a financial institution: Cedric Chanu, 42, of France and the United Arab Emirates, was convicted by a federal jury on Sept. 25, 2020.

The defendant, together with James Vorley and other Deutsche Bank traders, defrauded other market participants through a deceptive trading practice known as “spoofing.” Specifically, Chanu placed fraudulent orders that he did not intend to execute in order to create the false appearance of supply and demand and to induce other traders to transact at prices, quantities, and times that they otherwise would not have traded. Vorley was sentenced on June 21, also to 12 months and a day in prison.

Acting Assistant Attorney General Nicholas L. McQuaid of the Justice Department’s Criminal Division and Assistant Director in Charge William F. Sweeney Jr. of the FBI’s New York Field Office made the announcement.

The FBI’s New York Field Office investigated the case.

Deputy Chief Brian Young, Acting Principal Assistant Chief Avi Perry, and Trial Attorney Leslie S. Garthwaite of the Criminal Division’s Fraud Section are prosecuting the case.

(MINNEAPOLIS) Derek Chauvin Report: More than a year after George Floyd took his last breath, the ex-cop who murdered him will face a Minnesota judge Friday and receive a sentence of up to 30 years in prison #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – June.24: Derek Chauvin, a former Minneapolis police officer, has sat in a maximum-security prison cell since a jury found him guilty of second- and third-degree murder and second-degree manslaughter April 20. Chauvin, who has never expressed remorse for Floyd’s death, will have the opportunity to speak for the first time at the hearing.

MINNESOTA: UPDATE: Derek Chauvin Murder of George Floyd that is more than a year after, the ex-cop who murdered him will face a judge Friday and receive a sentence of up to 30 years in prison: Click here to read USA Today, by Tami Abdollah

Though he’s a first-time offender, Hennepin County District Judge Peter Cahill found that Chauvin should face a higher sentence because his crimes involved abusing his position of trust and authority and killing Floyd in the presence of children, among other aggravating factors.

Chauvin’s defense attorney Eric Nelson asked for probation or far less prison time. The prosecution argued that Chauvin deserves the maximum penalty for actions that “traumatized Mr. Floyd’s family, the bystanders who watched Mr. Floyd die and the community. And his conduct shocked the nation’s conscience.”

Legal observers expect Chauvin will receive prison time near or at the 30-year maximum, but Cahill has “pretty wide latitude in determining what sentence to impose” and both parties will try to convince the judge to “exercise his discretion in their favor,” said Ted Sampsell-Jones, a professor at Mitchell Hamline School of Law.

Whatever the sentence, per Minnesota law, Chauvin will serve two-thirds of it behind bars and the remainder under a type of supervised release that’s similar to parole. Chauvin, 45, will get credit for time served in prison while awaiting sentencing.

Floyd, 46, was killed in May 2020 after officers responded to a report that he had used a counterfeit $20 bill. Floyd was handcuffed face-down on the street and repeatedly yelled, “I can’t breathe” as Chauvin pressed a knee to his neck for more than nine minutes.

(SCOTLAND) Glasgow Court Report: A former prison officer has been told he must serve a minimum of 20 years for murdering his friend and dumping her naked body in a forest in April 2019: #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – June.23: Ross Willox, 42, killed Emma Faulds, 39, after a party at his house in Monkton, South Ayrshire, in April 2019: The youth worker’s body was found six weeks later after CCTV and mobile phone analysis was used to narrow down the remote search area:

Emma Faulds Murder: ‘Ross Willox jailed for at least 20 years after he was convicted of the murder at the High Court in Glasgow last month’

BBC Police Scotland

On Tuesday, he was jailed for life and ordered to serve at least 20 years before he can apply for parole.

Judge Lord Mulholland told him: “Only you will know what happened in your house that night that led to you killing your friend.

“Having murdered her you created an elaborate scheme to cover up your crime.”

He said that Willox placed Emma’s body in a shallow grave and covered it up, and tried to ensure it would decompose more quickly by placing it in a wet area.

Lord Mulholland added: “You hoped it would never be found and her devoted family would have to spend the rest of their lives wondering where she was and if she was alive or dead.”

It is still not known why or how Willox killed Emma, whom he had been friends with since they worked together as prison wardens at HMP Kilmarnock.

Detectives said the pair, who had a platonic relationship, had agreed to meet at his house in Monkton for a party on Sunday 28 April 2019.

At about 20:00, Emma messaged a friend to say she planned to have a few drinks and stay over.

Missing posters were distributed soon after Emma disappeared

Emma was usually in frequent contact with her loved ones, but no-one heard from her the following day.

Her mother, Margaret, said this was “totally out of character”.

The alarm was raised on 30 April after Mrs Faulds learned that Emma had not turned up for work at Kibble School in Paisley.

When police officers broke in to Emma’s flat in Kilmarnock they found that her pet dog, Maverick, was home alone.

As the last person to see her alive, Willox became the immediate focus of the investigation, codenamed Operation Solzen.

PA Media: Police and forensic teams at Willox’s house in Monkton, South Ayrshire

He told officers that Emma had decided to drive back to her flat, which was less than nine miles away, at about 23:00. 

He said Emma had been “positive and upbeat and enjoying herself” and was talking about her forthcoming 40th birthday.

The trial heard he twice called the police for updates on the case and gave different accounts to Emma’s sister, Sarah, about how she left his home in Monkton.

Footage from a dash-cam revealed that Emma’s car was parked outside Willox’s house at 17:39 on April 28.

But at about 07:25 the following day Emma’s neighbour told the jury he saw a man driving the vehicle in Fullerton Street, Kilmarnock.Emma Faulds murder: CCTV shows killer cleaning woman’s car

The driver was also captured on private CCTV wiping down the interior of the car. Willox’s DNA was later found on a seat lever.

The jury heard Willox did not join Emma’s family and friends when they put up posters and distributed leaflets after she was reported missing.

As the search for Emma intensified, experts began to plot Willox’s movements using CCTV and cell site analysis of his mobile phones.

They also discovered he used to build wind farms near the Galloway Forest, in Dumfries and Galloway.

He was caught on camera making two journeys to the remote area in the days following Emma’s disappearance.

CCTV footage was also discovered showing Willox going into various shops in Ayr and buying bleach, rubber gloves and tins of outdoor disinfectant.

Crown OfficeRoss Willox was seen on CCTV buying bleach, rubber gloves and outdoor disinfectant

Police drafted in search experts from the UK National Crime Agency, as well as an officer who had expert knowledge of Galloway Forest Park – which covers about 300 square miles.

By examining the cell site analysis from Willox’s phones and CCTV from the routes he took in the 48 hours after Emma vanished, digital forensic experts were able to narrow down the search area.

On 12 June, six weeks after Emma disappeared, her naked body was found in Glentrool Forest, east of Loch Moan.

A pathologist was unable to confirm how Emma died due to the “degree of decomposition”.

But the jury was told that soil found on boots owned by Willox was a 92% match for mud at the spot where the body was recovered.

‘Selfish, arrogant monster’

Prosecutor Paul Kearney told the jury Willox had made a “determined attempt to create a false narrative to conceal and destroy evidence”.

Donald Findlay QC, who was acting for Willox, said it would not be appropriate to express any contrition on behalf of his client, who denies he was responsible.

Mr Findlay added: “He is not the kind of person I would have expected to have found himself guilty of a crime of murder, murder of somebody that he knew and cared for – they cared for each other, not in any romantic sense, but as friends.

“Something catastrophic went wrong in the early hours of the morning, and one life was lost.”

Det Insp Peter Crombie described the killer as “a selfish, arrogant monster” and said he compounded the agony of Emma’s loved ones by failing to admit his crime.

PSNI Report: ‘Detectives welcome sentencing of two men at Newry Court for 32-months following seizure of drugs’

HighRes_PSNI_Crest_500px.png

Detective Inspector Shaw said: “I welcome the conviction of both Gedvilas and Zilionis following the recovery of these drugs in May 2020 after police stopped and searched a vehicle under the Misuse of Drugs Act on the Armagh road between Armagh and Newry. On completing a search of the area officers located an amount of suspected cocaine with an estimated street value of over £60,000: The Police Service of Northern Ireland is committed to both preventing dangerous drugs from ending up in local communities and pursuing those intent on destroying lives through the supply of illicit drugs: Drug dealers seek to make profit at the expense of causing harm and loss to local families. They set out to ruin the communities that they operate in and they do not care about the damage that they cause, preying on the most vulnerable members of their communities: We will continue to robustly and proactively pursue those who are intent on damaging our communities by supplying illegal drugs and the communities most damaged by the scourge of drugs support our ongoing efforts.

I would appeal for anyone with information regarding the supply of illegal drugs to contact police on 101 or submit a report online using our non-emergency reporting form via http://www.psni.police.uk/makeareport/.

Alternatively, information can also be provided to the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111 which is 100% anonymous and gives people the power to speak up and stop crime.”[15/06/21] Man arrested after male found with head injury, Limestone Road, north Belfast

(LONDON) Kingston Crown Court Report: A man from Somerset has been found guilty and sentenced for sharing terrorist material and possession of explosives #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – June.16: Monday (14/6) Morrice was sentenced to a total of 23 years imprisonment – eighteen years custodial with a further five years for what the judge described as his dangerousness.

Extreme right-wing terrorist sentenced to 23 years: A man from Somerset has been found guilty and sentenced for sharing terrorist material and possession of explosives.

** The following release has been issued by Counter Terrorism Policing South East **

Following an investigation led by Counter Terrorism Policing South East (CTPSE) and Counter Terrorism Policing South West (CTPSW), Dean Morrice of Pithay Court, Paulton was found guilty on Thursday (10/6) on eight counts by a unanimous jury and a further two counts on a majority verdict.

During a 15-day trial at Kingston Crown Court, jurors heard details of the 34-year-old’s offences. He was charged with a total of 10 counts and found guilty on all counts –

  • Three counts of dissemination of terrorist publication, contrary to section 2 (1) of the Terrorism Act 2006.
  • One count of encouraging terrorism, contrary to section 1 (1) of the Terrorism Act 2006;
  • Four counts of possession of a document or record for terrorist purposes, contrary to section 58 (1) (b) of the Terrorism Act 2000;
  • Two counts of having an explosive substance, contrary to section 4 (1) of the Explosive Substances Act 1883.

Morrice was arrested on 20 August 2020 and searches were carried out in Paulton near Bath as part of the investigation.

He was found to have terrorist material. This included the manifesto of other extreme right-wing terrorists and a video of a terrorist act in which he had superimposed a video of himself into the video while playing a guitar along to the harrowing scenes depicted. He then shared that video with others.Morrice superimposed himself onto a video of a terrorist act

He was in possession of documents which included other convicted terrorist manifestos.

He was found to have used communication channels to send memes and videos which encouraged terrorism which included the use of anti-Semitic imagery, neo-Nazi propaganda and suggested support for a race war.

Detective Chief Superintendent Kath Barnes, Head of CTPSE, said: “The evidence in this case has shown that Morrice had a clear extreme right-wing ideology and had terrorist intentions.

“He was also in possession of terrorist literature including ‘weapon and militia manuals’ and distributed this to further aid his warped ideology and try and encourage others.

“Through dedicated investigation, Morrice was stopped before he was able to carry out any physical act of terror but the evidence showed that he actively encouraged terrorism to others with his toxic ideology and had the intention and potentially the capability to commit one himself.”

The court heard that during searches of his property, a 3D printer was discovered along with evidence to suggest he was trying to construct a weapon. He was also found to have other explosive substances in his possessions along with manuals about how to make guns and guerrilla warfare.A 3D printer was discovered during a search of Morrice’s address along with evidence to suggest he was trying to construct a weapon

Det Chief Supt Barnes continued: “This is the first terrorism case which has taken evidence obtained by use of a 3D printer to court. CTPSE and CTPSW will continuously update knowledge and tactics to ensure the disruption of the wrongful use of new technology, as in this case.

“We work together across our network and with local forces and other law enforcement agencies to keep one step ahead.

“Although the weapon was not viable in the current state it was found in, in the wrong hands with the right capability it could have become one.

“I want to thank the dedicated investigation team and all our partners across the counter terrorism network, local forces and other law enforcement agencies in this case for all their hard work in getting this conviction.”

Chief Inspector Steve Kendall, Area Commander for Bath and North East Somerset, said: “People like Dean Morrice, who have extremist views and harbour such vile feelings of hatred towards sections of society, can live absolutely anywhere and although these instances are rare, they remind us we all need to be vigilant.

“While he evidently had the intent to equip himself with harmful substances and a weapon, there is no reason to believe any attack was imminent.

“His arrest in August last year undoubtedly concerned the community and I’d like to thank them for the restraint and resilience they showed following what was an unusual event.

“Public safety is our number one priority and we, together with all our security service partners, continue to work tirelessly to apprehend people like Morrice.

“If you are concerned about someone’s behaviour please contact us. We will be able to help with support, and where necessary, take appropriate action.”

Every year thousands of reports from the public help police tackle the terrorist threat and we need the public’s help and would always encourage people to report anything suspicious.

If you see or hear something that doesn’t seem right, please trust your instincts and ACT early especially if the people you love and know have started to have extreme views or are just acting differently to before.

(LONDON) Southwark Crown Court Report: A man has been jailed for drugging and raping a woman he had met through an online app.#AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – June.11: Adrian Reid, 31 (26.09.89) of Huxley Road, N18 appeared at Southwark Crown Court on Tuesday, 8 June where he was sentenced as follows:

  1. Rape – sentenced to 11 years imprisonment.
  2. Administering a substance with intent – sentenced to five years imprisonment to run concurrently to the above.
  3. Theft – sentenced to one year imprisonment for theft.

LONDON: Total to be served – twelve years imprisonment the court heard how Reid had contacted the woman, aged in her 20s, via a social media app using an alias. They had agreed to meet at her flat in Paddington in the early hours of 30 June 2020.

Adrian Reid, 31

Reid arrived and brought with him a bottle of alcohol and a bottle of soft drink. During their time together, Reid mixed drinks and gave them to the woman. After a while she began to feel unwell and Reid raped her before she passed out.

When she awoke in the morning, Reid was gone. She also realised a quantity of cash had been stolen from her flat.

Following forensic phone work, officers managed to identify Reid and arrested him on 2 July. Officers searched his flat and car and found a small bottle of clear liquid along with the drinks bottles he had taken to the flat. Analysis revealed the clear liquid was GHB and traces of this were also found in the bottle.

Reid was charged but denied the offences; however, due to the weight of evidence against him, a jury took just 40 minutes to convict him on 14 December 2020.

Detective Constable Pat Tully from the Central West Safeguarding Team based at Westminster said:
“Adrian Reid is a sexual predator and I am pleased that he will now face a significant period of time in jail: I hope the woman Reid attacked can take some solace in the fact he has been convicted – her bravery in coming forward has ensured a dangerous man is now behind bars: It is clear that this was not an opportunistic crime; Reid had clearly gone to some lengths in planning and then carrying out his attack: This leads me to believe that this may not have been his only offence and I would appeal to anyone who may have encountered Reid and been attacked by him to come forward and speak to police: Specially trained officers are available to support and help you, and our dedicated team will ensure any allegations are investigated sensitively and thoroughly.”

(SEATTLE) Justice Court Report: A 31-year-old ‘dark web’ heroin dealer was sentenced in U.S. District Court here to five years in prison, announced Acting U.S. Attorney Tessa M. Gorman #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – May.30: The case was investigated by Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) and the U.S. Postal Inspection Service, with assistance from the Mukilteo Police Department.

HSI Reports: Efforts help put ‘dark web’ drug dealer in prison: Zachary Madding of Mill Creek, was arrested at a long-stay hotel in Mukilteo, after a horrific assault on his estranged girlfriend. At the sentencing hearing U.S. District Judge James L. Robart said, “The person who is before me is not a good person…………….He is a common criminal who is engaged in the most serious behavior…. On the dark web you have no idea who you are dealing with… ……………..Because of your actions, there are 1,600 families out there who are going through the pain of addiction.”

“This defendant put thousands of people at risk of death by anonymously sending his potent heroin to all corners of the country,” said Gorman. “He knew all too well the destruction his drugs inflicted, having critically injured two young pedestrians while driving under the influence of narcotics. Dealing on the dark web spreads the destruction from heroin abuse to a far larger geographic area with callous disregard for how communities and addicts are damaged.”

According to records filed in the case, Madding first came to the attention of law enforcement in May 2018, when he attacked his estranged girlfriend by forcing Xanax down her throat and forcibly spraying fentanyl up her nose. Fortunately, medics were able to use Narcan to revive the victim. Madding was arrested. In his hotel room, law enforcement discovered false identification documents, shipping labels, drug ledgers, crushed Xanax tables and the fentanyl spray. An investigation by HSI revealed that from as early as 2016, Madding was selling heroin on dark web websites – these are an extensive network of computers that conceal the true Internet Protocol (“IP”) address of computing devices. Even as different marketplace sites were seized by law enforcement and shut down, Madding moved on to different sites. He took care to avoid detection by being paid in bitcoin, encrypting communications, and shipping drugs in such a way to avoid detection by drug detecting canines.

In all, Madding made more than 1,600 sales on the dark web and pocketed $72,000 in bitcoin.

“Madding’s rein of violence and drug dealing is over,” said Special Agent in Charge Robert Hammer, who oversees HSI operations in the Pacific Northwest. “The law enforcement partnerships we have in Washington are stronger than criminals who hide behind computer screens peddling poison in our communities.”

Madding’s dark web dealing accelerated after he was released from a state prison sentence for vehicular assault. In that case, in August 2014, Madding drove under the influence of heroin and struck two teenagers as they walked on the side of the road. Both were badly injured, and one suffered a critical and life-altering brain injury.

The case is being prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Marie Dalton.

HSI is a directorate of U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) and the principal investigative arm of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS), responsible for investigating transnational crime and threats, specifically those criminal organizations that exploit the global infrastructure through which international trade, travel and finance move. HSI’s workforce of over 10,400 employees consists of more than 7,100 Special Agents assigned to 220 cities throughout the United States, and 80 overseas locations in 53 countries. HSI’s international presence represents DHS’s largest investigative law enforcement presence abroad and one of the largest international footprints in U.S. law enforcement.

On 3 November Cox entered her garden and broke into her home where he stole a set of keys, slippers and underwear: Cox was arrested on 19 November after a DNA match:

Detective Constable Michael Dixon, who led the investigation, said: “We still don’t know why Charles Cox developed an obsession with the woman who he had never met before: His stalking must have been extremely disturbing and shocking, especially as it happened at the victim’s home. Alarmingly Charles Cox went on to break into her house where he stole various items from, including the victim’s underwear: We were able to identify Charles Cox after sending semen found on the victim’s back door for urgent examination which resulted in a DNA match: I would urge anyone being targeted and stalked to immediately report it. This will help us to take offenders like Charles Cox off the streets of London and make our city a safer place for all.”

LONDON: Man sentenced to life in prison for sexually abusing a number of children over a 35-year period: Paul Farrell, 55 (01.10.65) of Castle Road, Camden, was sentenced to life in prison with a minimum term of 18 years at Wood Green Crown Court on Monday, 24 May.

[JAILED]: Paul Farrell

[JAILED]: Paul Farrell

These offences included counts of indecency with a child, indecent assault, sexual assault of a child, causing a child to engage in sexual activity, sexual activity with a child, attempted rape and possessing indecent images.

The offences relate to eight victims, committed between 1985 and 2020.

Farrell was also charged with three counts of possessing an indecent photograph / pseudo-photo of a child, one count of making indecent photograph / pseudo-photograph of a child and one count of possessing extreme pornographic images, which were heard at Highbury Corner Magistrates’ Court on 3 July 2020.

Officers from the Central North safeguarding team visited Farrell at his work address and arrested him on suspicion of historic child abuse.

A number of devices were seized from his home, and Farrell was released on conditional bail pending further enquiries.

The devices were analysed, and indecent images of children were found. These were graded A – depicting the most serious child abuse – to C.

Upon returning from bail in May 2020, Farrell was charged with three counts of possession of indecent images. More indecent images and extreme pornography would later be found, and further charges brought.

Meanwhile, text messages were retrieved from his mobile phone which led to enquiries being made about other young victims who may have been abused.

Six further victims were identified, and they disclosed that they were sexually abused by Farrell at different periods in the 1980s, 1990s and 2010s with the most recent offences in June 2020 while he was on bail.

In each case, Farrell was a lodger, or babysat, at the homes of his victim’s families, and befriended the parents before abusing the children. The victims were aged between five and 15 when they were abused, at different addresses in London.

Two victims told police that Farrell had taken them to his place of work – a hospital in central London where he was employed as a porter – for a visit and abused them there. None of the victims reported being abused as patients at the hospital.

Detective Sergeant Jules Manock, from the Central North safeguarding team who led the investigation, said: “The survivors who have come forward have shown incredible bravery and I hope now that Farrell’s guilty pleas and lengthy sentence can offer them some closure after years of suffering in silence: The accounts they gave to police of the abuse they suffered at the hand of Paul Farrell, and how their childhoods were stolen from them, were nothing short of harrowing, and today’s result means a predatory paedophile is now in custody where he can’t harm any more children.”

Detective Superintendent Dave Courcha, from the Central North area, said: “Farrell was extremely calculating and devious in his targeting of children – he lodged at the homes of accommodating families and won their trust, only to abuse their children under their noses over a prolonged period: Most of the victims lived with the trauma of what they were subjected to for decades, with two victims waiting more than 30 years before feeling ready to come forward to police: I would like to acknowledge the courage of each of the survivors in giving statements and reliving the horrors they went through to ensure that Farrell could be brought to justice: I would also like to praise the efforts of the investigation team who worked extremely hard to identify further victims and obtain statements. This is a good example of the Met’s commitment to safeguard the vulnerable and support survivors of sexual abuse: Farrell admitting to what he did has spared these survivors the prospect of having to describe the abuse in a court, and he will now serve life in prison for his crimes: Given the predatory nature of his offending over an extremely long period of time, there is a very real possibility that Farrell has abused other children. We urge any further victims to contact police right away – a specially trained team of detectives are ready to listen to your story and support you.”

Anyone who has either been a victim of Farrell’s offending, or who has concerns about Farrell’s offending should in the first instance call a helpline set up by the NSPCC for this case – 0800 101 996, or email help@nspcc.org.uk. Any allegations of crime will be passed to police and reviewed.

Lesiak was sentenced to 18 years in prison at Liverpool Crown Court today, Tuesday 25 May, after an earlier trial of three people in 2016: Four offenders kidnapped a 27-year-old man in November 2015, keeping him against his will for around 10 hours. Two of the offenders, Lesiak and Daniel Misiolek, subjected him to a series of physical and sexual assaults in that time: Lesiak was later identified as being involved and was arrested in the Anfield area in September 2020 after failing to appear at court:

The following people were sentenced on Friday, 30 September 2016 following a trial: Daniel Misiolek of Simons Croft, Netherton was jailed for life after admitting kidnap, rape, false imprisonment, assault occasioning actual bodily harm, robbery, and six counts of causing a male to engage in sexual activity without consent: Awna Baszak of Simons Croft, Netherton was jailed for 12 years after being convicted of kidnap and two counts of causing a person to engage in sexual activity without consent following a trial: Dagmara Szary, of Belton Road, Huyton was jailed for 15 months in a young offenders institution after being convicted of kidnap following a trial.

Following the sentencing, Detective Sergeant Jamie Dean said: “It is pleasing to see this highly disturbing case brought to a full conclusion, and Lesiak facing the consequences of his appalling violence and abuse in 2015. Lesiak and Daniel Misiolek subjected their victim to this horrific ordeal, some of which was filmed by Awna Baszak on a mobile phone: The courage the victim has shown during the first trial and in the years since have ensured that four people have now been brought to justice, and hopefully provided some comfort when coming to terms with what happened: Rape is a very personal crime, which many victims, understandably, struggle to come to terms with and it can have a devastating effect for the rest of their lives. There is no doubt that this continues to have a profound impact on this victim. Hopefully his immense bravery will encourage other victims of sexual offences to come forward and have the confidence in us to do the right thing and support them throughout their ordeal: I want to make it clear that if you report a sexual offence, we will investigate it thoroughly and provide you with the utmost support throughout. We are here to treat you with compassion and respect, and will work tirelessly to put perpetrators before the courts. Specialist police officers from our Unity team work side-by-side with a number of partners including Independent Sexual Violence Advisors (ISVAs), who work with the victim from the moment the police make the referral through to the court case and beyond.”

Anyone with information or wants to report sexual offence allegation is asked to call 101 where you will be spoken to by specially trained officers or you can pass information to Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111: Support for victims is also available through the registered charity the Rape and Sexual Abuse Support Centre Cheshire and Merseyside, who can be contacted on 01925 221 546 or 0330 363 0063, or Rape and Sexual Assault Merseyside (RASA) on 0151 558 1801.
