Anton Maher, 28, has been jailed following a series of robberies and violent threats in Birmingham City Centre throughout the year.
Maher has struck three times this year, according to West Midlands Police. He was sentenced and jailed at the Birmingham Crown Court on October 1 for seven years and six months.
According to the police, Maher “smashed his way through to a house on Carnwath Road in Sutton Coldfield in June and ransacked the property.
“He left with an array of sentimental jewellery, watches, champagne and binoculars.
In a separate incident on Saturday 25th July, Maher approached two men on Temple Row in Birmingham city centre and asked for a cigarette.
“When they refused, he began using a racist slur to provoke them, before pulling out an imitation firearm from his waistband and threatening them with it.
“He dropped the gun after hitting it off one of their head’s and then ran off with one of their phones.”
Maher pleaded guilty last Thursday and was sentenced to seven years and six months in prison for robbery, possession of an imitation firearm and burglary.
