jail for couple who robbed a disabled man

A wanted man and woman, who were convicted of robbing a disabled man, have been arrested.

Kirsty Norris, 32, and David Mercer, 25, both of Queensway, Brighton, were sentenced to two years’ imprisonment, suspended for two years, in October last year, after being found guilty of robbery and five counts of fraud.

But following the Solicitor General’s intervention, the Court of Appeal increased their sentences to three years’ immediate imprisonment. They were required to hand themselves into police by 6pm on Thursday, March 12, but failed to do so.

Police searched for the couple and issued an appeal to track them down.

They were located in Crawley on Tuesday, 31 March, and subsequently arrested.
