17 years jail sentence for explosive robbery

Leamington Spa man Liam Timms has been jailed for seventeen years after a failed robbery in which the victims’ arm was nearly blown off.

Timms almost severed a 22-year-old’s arm in a gun injury when he shot at the victim as he attempted to rob a bracelet and phone. The incident happened in Coat of Arms Bridge Road in Coventry.

CCTV footage shows the 23-year-old Liam Timms visiting Warwick Hospital on twelve occasions for a hand injury from the gun robbery. He claimed the injury to be caused by a firework.

Timms left the hospital before police later found him looking for treatments in Birmingham under an alias.

The 23-year-old was sentenced seventeen years in jail for attempted murder and possession for a firearm with the intent to endanger life.

“We’re pleased that his sentence reflects the serious nature of his crime and as a result a dangerous man has been taken off the streets of the West Midlands,” said the West Midlands Police force detective constable, Aman Mundal.
