Barrie Rhodes jailed for 12 years for 1986 attempted robbery
A PENSIONER has been jailed for 12 years after committing an armed raid 26 years ago.
On Friday, Barrie Rhodes was found guilty by a jury of attempting to rob Jeanian Jewellers in Derby on July 10, 1986.
He has been convicted of being one of the two men who walked into the wholesalers in Osmaston Road with a sawn-off shotgun.
The weapon was pointed at the head of a woman working in the wholesalers but they ran off empty-handed when her husband set off the alarm. The 65-year-old, of Monument Lane, Ironville, had denied the allegation.
