A man has been sentenced to prison for an attempted robbery in High Wycombe.
Clinton McKoy, aged 42, of Sidney Close, Uxbridge, was sentenced to a total of two years’ imprisonment at Aylesbury Crown Court on Friday (1/11).
He pleaded guilty at the same hearing to one count of attempted robbery.
On 3 February this year, McKoy entered Tesco in London Road, Loudwater, High Wycombe and made his way into the staff-only area of the store.
He then went into an office and attempted to open the safe before trying to wrestle a member of staff’s wallet away from him.
McKoy then fled the store without stealing anything.
He was charged with the offence on 27 September.
Investigating officer, Detective Sergeant Nathan Davey, based at High Wycombe police station, said: “Clinton McKoy tried to steal money from the safe at the store and then from a member of staff.
“He failed in both these attempts and then fled the store but was later arrested and charged with this offence.
“I would like to thank the staff at Tesco for supporting this investigation, and I hope that this shows the consequences of this sort of offence.”
