The four men involved in the theft of prized Red Bull Racing trophies from the company’s headquarters late last year, have each been sentenced to jail time.
Last December, the gang consisting of Danny Stevens, Paul Smith, Luke Cole and Jason Eastwood, rammed a 4×4 through the doors of RBR’s factory in Milton Keynes where they stole over 60 trophies accumulated by the racing outfit during its hugely successful time in Formula One. Just over a week after the theft, about 20 of the trophies were found in a nearby lake but as of yet, the whereabouts of the remaining trophies remains unclear.
The theft of Red Bull Racing was one of just 40 burglaries conducted by the gang between November 2014 and April 2015 with over 1 million pounds worth of possessions being stolen and 317,000 pounds of damage caused.
At the Guildford Crown Court, the thieves were slapped with jail terms varying from two years to seven years.
