Third brother jailed after traveller site raid

A TRIO of travellers arrested in a major police operation have been sentenced for their part in a plot to sell £1.3 million worth of clocked and stolen vehicles.

The three were part of a group of 16 people charged after raids on travellers' sites at Justin Park and Braybrooke in April last year.

Bobby Biddle (22) and Priscilla Devlin (24), from Justin Park, and Sherry Stretton (33), who now lives in Banbury but lived at the site at the time of the raids, appeared at Leicester Crown Court on Thursday.

Biddle, whose brothers Elvis and Boysie and parents John and Florence were jailed last month, was given an eight-month jail sentence after admitting conspiracy to convert criminal property and three charges of obtaining property by deception, 11,500 in cash by selling clocked vehicles, at hearings in October.

Priscilla Devlin, Elvis Biddle's wife, was given a two year conditional discharge after admitting possession of criminal property, 4,850 and 800 Euros in cash. Judge William Everard said she avoided a community punishment because of poor health.

Sherry Stretton, who had admitted possessing 106,000 of jewellery which was criminal property and dishonestly obtaining more than 19,000 in benefits, was ordered to complete 200 hours of unpaid work in the community.
