The two Brits who faked the robbery of $35 million in jewellery and cash from their Sandy Lane residence have been jailed.
Tululla Sydney Georgia Salvatori, 27, will spend 18 months in prison – twice the length of time 41-year-old Edward John Denney will be behind bars – since she was also punished for obtaining services by deception.
The duo appeared in the Holetown Magistrate’s Court this afternoon and pleaded guilty to wilfully wasting police time.
They had reported that at about 3:10 a.m. on February 5 they had been assaulted by two armed intruders while at home in the upscale St James district and robbed of a gold Rolex watch valued at $17,000, one iPad valued at $950, a second iPad valued at $1200, an engagement ring valued at $12.8 million, a platinum necklace valued at $3.2 million, a Cartier platinum ladies watch valued at $19.2 million and $2,000 in cash.
But lawmen subsequently received information that no such crime had taken place. When the two were interviewed, they recanted their stories.
Salvatori also hired a vehicle from a car rental company and presented a cheque for $7,606.25 which subsequently bounced. She pleaded guilty to that offence and was sentenced to nine months on each charge, to run consecutively.
