Langholm Bank Robber Sentenced To 10 Years

A 41 year old man, Russell Snowdon, from County Durham was today sentenced at Glasgow High Court to over 10 years imprisonment relating to the break-in to the Royal Bank of Scotland in Langholm in November 2016.

Speaking after the sentence Detective Sergeant Colin McKinstry said “This was a considerable enquiry which was helped in no small part by those living in the Langholm community who came forward with crucial information. This sentence clearly reflects the seriousness of the crime and once again sends out a strong message to any would be criminals that they will pay a heavy price if they think they can commit crime and get away with it just because this is a rural area. Police Scotland will continue to work with our communities to ensure that our people and our property are kept safe from those who might think we are a soft touch.”
