The gang who used a stolen Audi to carry out knifepoint street robberies in Bury, Prestwich and Whitefield then they used a stolen bank card to order Pizza worth £183.
Abdullah Chaudhry, 19, of Park Road, Prestwich, and two other teenagers have been locked up after a series of terrifying knifepoint robberies.
A 16-year-old boy from Cheetham Hill was detained for two years and a 17-year-old also from Cheetham Hill for three years. Both cannot be named because of their ages.
Detectives said the gang were ‘as foolish as they were menacing’ and revealed they ‘left countless pieces of evidence in their wake’.
The first robbery happened when a man stopped his green Vauxhall Corsa at the junction of Albert Street and Rochdale Road in Bury.
Police said a man reached in through the window and took the keys from the ignition, before three others got into the back of the car. One produced a knife and held it to the back of the driver’s head, threatening to kill him.
A number of items stolen during the robberies, including mobile phones and bank cards, were recovered.
