Serial thief sentenced to 52 months for ram raids

Following a Surrey Police investigation, a 24-year-old man was yesterday (14 July) sentenced to a total of 12 months and 2 weeks to be served in addition to his original sentence of 40 months imprisonment.

Jimmy Loveridge, previously of Chertsey Road, Chobham, had already pleaded guilty and is currently serving 40 months imprisonment at Lewes Prison in connection with a ram raid at Mercedes-Benz World, Weybridge which occurred on 15 December 2014.

Loveridge appeared at Guildford Crown Court on Thursday, 14 July where he again pleaded guilty to further allegations of conspiracy to commit burglary and conspiracy to steal in relation to a ram raid at Spar in Elstead, on 14 December 2014 where a large quantity of cash was stolen and resulted in the total damage of an estimated £18,780 and significant cost to replace the machine.

Following this, he was sentenced to serve, in total, 52 months to run concurrently with his original sentence, meaning he will serve 12 additional months.

He also pleaded guilty to possession of a mobile phone whilst detained and was sentenced to serve 2 weeks in prison in addition to his original 40 month conviction.

Temporary Detective Chief Inspector Shaun Anderson said: “Loveridge is a serial thief and shows little compassion to public property which has resulted in him being involved in a spree of ATM thefts.

“I am pleased that Loveridge has received this additional sentence and I hope this reassures the public that criminals like him will be identified and brought to justice.”
