An armed robber, who was identified thanks to the public, has been sentenced for targeting a shop in Buxton.
Kyah Hammond has been sentenced to 18 months in a Young Offenders' Institution after pleading guilty to robbing Henry’s Store, in London Road, on 28 March last year.
Hammond was armed with a knife and he took a large amount of cigarettes and cash after threatening a female member of staff.
He discarded the clothing he was wearing and as part of the investigation, we released images of the items – including a distinctive Wed’ze ski mask.
A member of the public who saw an appeal poster came forward and Hammond was identified as a suspect and arrested.
Hammond (18), of Toulmin Drive, Swadlincote, was sentenced at Derby Crown Court on 6 November.
