West Yorkshire bed company employee jailed after being filmed robbing the factory where he worked and stealing £ 4,500
Liviu-ciprian Mustafa was arrested after his boss looked at a mobile phone security app as he took £ 4,500 in cash from an office.
Leeds Crown Court has learned that Mustafa broke into Bedwise UK, Bradford Road, Dewsbury on June 24 of this year.
Adam Keenaghan, prosecutor, said the 26-year-old had worked at the company for three weeks when he committed the offense.
The business owner received a security alert on his cell phone at 2:25 a.m. after an alarm went off in the building.
He then viewed footage on his cell phone as Mustafa entered the building.
Mr Keenaghan said the victim recognized Mustafa because he was wearing the same clothes as the day before at work.
The owner went to the factory and discovered that a door to his office had been forced open and money had been taken from a drawer.
Mustafa’s partner opened the door and told the man he was not at home.
The owner returned to the factory and then returned to Mustafa’s address at 6.30am.
Mustafa’s partner said the accused still had not returned home.
As the victim was talking to the woman, a taxi pulled up in front of the house.
Mustafa’s partner reported to the driver that the taxi had been canceled.
The owner became suspicious and asked the driver where the taxi was booked to go.
The driver told him the vehicle had been booked for Manchester Airport.
The owner then asked to be allowed into the house and found Mustafa hiding in a bedroom.
The stalker left rotten meat, a dagger and photos of the Russian royal family outside …
Mustafa pointed to a pillow in the bedroom and the money was found underneath.
The police were then contacted and he was arrested.
Mustafa pleaded guilty to burglary.
He has already been convicted of traffic violations.
Probation officer Malcolm Brown told court the father-of-two said in an interview that he took the money after he started abusing cocaine and alcohol.
Mr Brown said: “He sort of lived the lifestyle of a single man.
“He realizes that he has put not only himself but his family in danger.”
Caroline Abrahams, attenuating, said Mustafa pleaded guilty at an early stage and had been in detention since his arrest.
Mustafa was jailed for 16 months.
Judge Simon Phillips said: “You have deliberately targeted your employer’s premises.
“He was a man who had shown you kindness, giving you a job and loaning you money a fortnight earlier.”
