Serial conman who posed as undercover cop Mason Crozier (Image: MEN) A serial conman who taunted his victims by admitting 'I'm a grafter' after stealing cars and vans worth almost £50,000 is back behind bars. Mason Crozier tricked several people into letting him drive away in the vehicles they were selling by pretending an internet bank transfer was about to be made. On one occasion he posed as an undercover GMP officer and gave his victim a fake collar number to persuade him to let him drive off in an Audi A3 worth £7,250. In total Crozier, 21, stole six vehicles- including a Ford Transit van worth £13,000 and a BMW worth £3,500 - over a nine month period during lockdown in 2020 and 2021, Manchester Minshull Street Crown Court heard. The first offence took place just days after he was released from a young offenders institute on licence having been sentenced in February 2020 for a string of almost identical crimes. After one victim, from whom Crozier stole a Renault Trafic van, made numerous attempts to contact him the conman texted: "Look pal, stop ringing. I've done this to hundreds of people. "Your van is gone. It's in parts all over the north west. You can report this to the police they will tell you it's a civil matter because you gave me the keys. They won't be interested so good luck."

I will give you the car back. It's not worth the headache. Give me a couple of hours I will get it back to you." The car was never returned, the court heard. After stealing £50 of diesel from a petrol station in Northenden by persuading staff he would pay via bank transfer Crozier threatened the owner by saying he would get a 'load of kids' to go round and strip the shelves. Gwen Henshaw, prosecuting, said the majority of Crozier's victims had advertised their vehicles for sale on either Facebook or Gumtree. 'Hard-working' man found with 'sickening haul' in BMW Jake Hartley, left, and his BMW, right A ‘hard-working man’ was caught with a ‘drug dealers kit’ following a raid at his house before police found a gun, a silencer and drugs in his BMW parked outside. Jake Hartley, 28, was also found with a kilogram of cannabis, cocaine and Taurine - which is used as a cutting agent. The handgun, a Walther P99, was found to be in working order, alongside 18 rounds of ammunition. He also had a knuckle duster and baton concealed in the boot of his car, Minshull Street Crown Court heard. After pleading guilty to a raft of offences, Hartley was jailed for over seven years. Prosecuting, Lisa Boocock said that in the early hours of January 20 this year, police attended at Hartley’s home in Hollingworth. They searched his bedroom and then his BMW which was parked outside and was unlocked. “They found three sets of scales with various traces of drugs on them, as well as snap bags and a block of Taurine, which weighed around 769 grams. Taurine is used as a cutting agent,” Ms Boocock said. “There was also a vacuum pack of one kilogram of cannabis. In the car boot, officers found 91 grams of cocaine at a purity of 32%. The total value of the drugs was £20,000.” Read More Related Articles 'You have let your family down': Sickening haul police found in back of 'hard-working' man's BMW Officers also found a baton, a knuckle duster, and a Walther P99 self loading pistol, as well as a silencer and 18 rounds of ammunition. The gun was test fired and found to be in working order. Hartley’s DNA was found on the handgun, it was said. Prosecutors said the items were a ‘drug dealers kit’, and Hartley must have known this as he handled them personally. He originally claimed he was given a package and was unaware of its contents - a defence he didn’t proceed with in court. He has since pleaded guilty to possession of a prohibited weapon; possession of ammunition; possession of an offensive weapon, and possession with intent to supply class A and B drugs. Hartley, of Green Lane, was jailed for seven years and 10 months. Salford man who killed woman in Christmas Day crash while heading to shops Nathaniel Ritchie, from Salford.

. Teen who sent sick Snapchat message after almost killing boy
A teenager with an 'obsession' for weapons posted a video of a terrifying combat knife on Snapchat after almost killing a 16-year-old boy. In the chilling clip, featuring a serrated blade which appeared to have blood on it, Kyle McGuinness wrote 'enjoy the hospital' in an accompanying message. Shortly before posting the video, McGuinness, 17, had stabbed a 16-year-old boy in Ashton town centre, leaving him fighting for his life. McGuinness took to Snapchat and wrote: "Two of you tried dukking (stabbing) me down. Shame, enjoy the hospital lad', followed by two laughing emojis. About five months later, after he'd been given bail following the appalling attack, McGuinness went on to stab another young man in Trafford. Now a judge has declared him 'dangerous' and said he had an 'obsession' with weapons. McGuinness can be named for the first time after the M.E.N. successfully applied to have reporting restrictions imposed due to his age lifted.

'Despicable' thugs landed punches on two men and left one fearing he would be thrown into a canal over two terrifying incidents in Manchester. Michal Czerniawski and Michal Kardas attacked two men on the same day in an attempt to steal their belongings, Manchester Crown Court was told. The court heard how on the afternoon of November 10 last year, Czerniawski and Kardas approached their first victim - a man in his 50s - on Dale Street in the Northern Quarter. The pair demanded his bag before viciously and repeatedly punching the victim to his face. A member of the public spotted the situation and ran over to help, leading to the defendants running away from the scene. Later on that evening, at around 8pm, the defendants found their second victim - a man in his 30s - who was walking beside the canal in Ancoats.

Czerniawski then punched the victim to his stomach, while Kardas gripped his neck so tightly that he fell unconscious. When he woke up, the victim heard the pair demanding the pin code to his mobile phone, before they managed to leave with the device. Czerniawski and Kardas, both of no fixed abode, were found guilty of robbery and attempted robbery. Czerniawski was jailed for four years and five months, while Kardas received a prison sentence of four years and six months. Gangster's girlfriend jailed after couriering SIX guns for drugs gang
A gangster's girlfriend has been locked up after she transported SIX deadly guns to another criminal gang at the height of lockdown. Former nightclub hostess Holly Caldwell, 27, was jailed for seven years after she drove the terrifying haul of weapons and 180 rounds of ammunition down south to criminals in Luton, days after the first coronavirus lockdown was imposed and people were ordered to stay at home. Caldwell also couriered drugs for her boyfriend Tareanio Blake, 30, who headed a Cheetham Hill organised crime gang alongside Mohammed Shahid, also 30. Caldwell, who was using the money she was paid to save for a deposit on a house, said she had no idea the package in the back of her car contained guns, instead believing it was drugs. She drove to Luton in a Honda Civic and was told the password for the exchange was 'covid', to ensure she handed over the horrifying haul to the right people. Shahid, who was organising the handover, spoke with Blake about his girlfriend's role in the crime. "I don't know if you wanted me to send her," he said of Caldwell. Shahid apologised and said he should have asked for Blake's permission. Blake said he 'can't stop someone doing something they want to'.
