The Camera Does Not Lie
Police warning for man who falsely reported he'd been robbed
A 46 year old man who tried to con police into believing he had been attacked and robbed of thousands of pounds at the Arcadia Shopping Centre in Ealing was proven to be a liar by CCTV.
On Wednesday 3rd June 2010, Jeremy Mould from Surrey ran from the shopping centre clutching his sides and collapsed on the bonnet of a police car.
He told officers that he had just been attacked and robbed by two men who had punched him knocking him unconscious and then taken £4,500 cash, a watch and a mobile phone.
Police checked the CCTV in the car park where Mr Mould had alleged the crime took place but the footage did not show any such incident.
It emerged that Mr Mould, who informed police he was a Director for a company called Silver Asset Management, owed £4500 to a customer for the sale of a car.
Police were able to show that Mould had fabricated the incident in order to avoid paying the £4,500 to the customer.
On the 17th December 2010 Mould of 33 Tudor Avenue, Worcester Park, Surrey, was convicted of fraud by false representation.
He was sentenced to 100 hours community service with compensation of £4500 to the victim and the offence to pervert the course of justice to remain on file.
Detective Superintendent Nev Nolan Said :
"Those who make false reports for whatever reason, take up finite police resources that are needed elsewhere to keep the people of Ealing Borough safe. I have directed my officers to rigorously investigate every allegation of crime and in doing so they will identify people making false allegations. These people will be arrested and dealt with accordingly".
