Essex rioter jailed for Enfield Town burglary and disorder
An Essex teenager has been jailed for burglary and violent disorder in Enfield Town during the riots.
Demar Floyd, 18, of Greenfield House in Birch Colchester, broke into Golden Mantella Jewellers in The Town at approximately 8pm on August 7.
He was part of a large crowd who smashed through the shop's shutters before stealing approximately £35,000 of watches.
Serious damage was also caused to fixtures and fittings.
The offence was caught on CCTV and officers identified Floyd as a ring-leader.
Just a few minutes later, Floyd kicked the shop front of Argos in Cecil Road with a gang of rioters. Although entry was not gained, Floyd was again identified on CCTV.
He was found guilty of violent disorder, criminal damage and burglary when he appeared at Wood Green Crown Court on August 28 and was sentenced to 27 months in jail.
The teenager was arrested and charged on September 30 last year.
He failed to appear at Highbury Corner Magistrates Court on November 15 where his trial was set to be heard.
On July 29 this year, Floyd was arrested at the rear of his mother’s property despite him trying to flee. He was taken into custody and sentenced on August 28.
He was also found guilty of violent disorder after he was identified throwing bricks and a large traffic sign at the front window of HMV in Church Street before trying to kick the window in.
He attacked the front window of the T-Mobile store in Church Street before burgling goods from inside.
