Ionut Juganaru, of Ryelands Street, Whitecross, Hereford

 

 

I'm not familiar with that individual but it's obviously a Romanian name. He's from one of the bedsit capitals of Hereford so I am assuming he is a fairly new arrival to the City ...

 

The more general point I would wish to make is the people from that area seem to parachute into Hereford having left behind any baggage they may have in the Country they have left.

 

They seem to arrive with absolutely no one knowing what they may, or may not, have been up to before! 

 

The general first contact with the cops might be drink related on the streets. Or shop lifting. But the Police Computer does not reach as far as Eastern Europe! So they climb up the local system from a clean slate! 

 

This Ionut Juganaru character might be a usually decent guy but he might be some really dodgy guy who originally arrived having left some stuff behind! Who knows?

 

At any rate, if he's guilty, he'll be costing the tax payer hundreds, if not thousands of £££'s , per week for 5 years ...

Thumbs up Roger, because I've ran out of my quota :P

 

I know we've had problems, but they do seem to be causing a spike in crime. Murder, armed robbery, ATM skimming, muggings, theft, illegal tax imports under the counter, etc etc

The current answer seems to be CSO's doubling up to drift about in cars. Or cycling somewhere ... Total token effort .... 

 

Also there must be a strain on the system with all these people coming over? Schools, Doctors .... Social care when the family goes wrong after arrival ... There is a big problem here I think ... All badly thought out ...

Around £50,000 a year. It costs well over £130,000 a year to keep a young offender locked up.

We had a different name and it was in March, so has this place been robbed twice? See the Hereford Times article

Hooded Hereford casino robber forced staff to face a wall at gunpoint

 

3092217.jpg?type=articleLandscape

 

A HOODED gunman held up a Hereford casino and forced staff to face a wall until they handed over more £2k in takings.

Worcester Crown Court was told two staff feared being shot by Ionut Juganaru who admitted robbery and a firearms charge.

Juganaru, 26, of Ryelands Street, Hereford, was jailed for six years.

The court heard how a customer slipped away from the early morning hold-up at Cashino, Eign Gate, to call the police.

Hooded, with a scarf across his face, Juganaru menaced staff with a “life-like” pistol and forced them to face a wall, said Simon Phillips, prosecuting.

Two staff who feared they were going to be shot have been unable to work since,” said Mr Phillips.

Juganaru took £2,415 in notes, rejecting the coins, and fled to Victoria Street underpass where he changed clothes.

Hunted by armed police, Juganaru was spotted and arrested soon afterwards in the city centre.

His pistol was found to be a ball-bearing gun.

John Dyer, defending, said the robbery had been “sheer stupidity” by Juganaru, a Romanian national, who was earning up to £400 a week at a plastics factory in Bromyard.

Juganaru, said Mr Dyer, had not been able to give an explanation for his action beyond “being tired”.

The court was told Juganaru wished to apologise not only to casino staff but to “the United Kingdom” for giving him a chance to work.
