A robber who held up a petrol station worker at knifepoint and stole £25 from the till has been locked up for three years, four months.

Lukas Cebatavicious walked into the Co-op BP service station on Sheffield Road, Barnsley, and threatened an employee with a pocket knife before lunging towards the till.

He stole £25 before leaving the shop at around 7.50pm on December 2 last year.

The court heard the incident was caught on CCTV and Cebatavicius was recognised by a member of the public.

He was picked out at an identification parade and admitted the offence to police.

Cebatavicious, aged 21, of no fixed address, will be deported back to Lithuania once he has served his jail term.

Det Con Matt Gregory said: “I want to thank the public for their help in this case - without them we wouldn’t have been able to identify him.

“I am pleased he has been given a prison sentence and want to reassure the public we will not tolerate crime in Barnsley, and will do everything we can to catch those responsible.”
