The men were found in possession of four laptop computers containing the details of over 3500 debit and credit cards, following a raid by DCPCU officers at an address in Hackney, London in May 2012.

The convicted trio had used the compromised card details to purchase almost £10,000 worth of goods, including online orders of alcohol and cigarettes.

Ajeniya, Runsewe and George were all convicted of theft, and were sentenced at the Old Bailey. George received a sentence of 2 years and 6 months, with Runsewe and Ajeniya both sentenced for 2 years 3 months.

DCI Dave Carter, Head of the DCPCU, commented: “These criminals stole the personal financial details of thousands of individuals and used them for their own fraudulent activities. Today’s sentence sends a clear message to others that our specialist unit is working hard to identify and take out of circulation the perpetrators of such crimes.”
