In April 2017, a man was jailed for seven years for his part in an armed raid at the same store in which a machete and hunting knife were brandished.

Jamie John Wild, then 25 and of Westminster Crescent, Lodge Moor, was among three men who brandished the weapons and threatened a member of staff before escaping with £200 after forcing their way into the till.

Wild pleaded guilty to robbery.
