TWO 'greedy' robbers who stole thousands of pounds splashed their cash at Gunwharf Quays.
Wayne Grant and Connor Davis robbed two petrol stations and a Betfred bookies in Eastleigh, Hedge End and Southampton in just under 48 hours between 25-26 September 2017.
Now they have been jailed for the crimes that saw them wear balaclavas, brandish a knife and extendable baton.
They took at least £3,250 and 18 packets of cigarettes.
DC Sean Owens said: ‘Grant and Davis then treated themselves to a shopping spree with their ill-gotten gains at Gunwharf Quays in Portsmouth.
‘They were seen on CCTV paying for items with a lot of coins, which was circumstantially linked to the robbery at Botley service station.’
He added Grant's phone showed he had searched on Google for the Betfred. They also spent £400 on clothes at JD Sports in Bournemouth with their illicit gains.
DC Owen said: ‘We know many people will think this investigation took a long time, but no matter how long it takes, we will always seek to get justice and ensure dangerous and greedy offenders like Grant and Davis are put before a court.’
Grant was jailed for eight years and Davis for nine.
Grant, 27, of Byron Road, Southampton and Davis, 25, of no fixed address were convicted of three robberies at a Southampton Crown Court trial.
