Ex-UFC and Cage Rage fighter Lee Murray jailed for 10 years

A cage-fighter has been jailed in Morocco for his part in the UK's biggest cash raid at a Securitas depot.

 

Lee Murray, from south London, was named during the trial of other gang members as the "mastermind" of the ?53m raid in Kent in February 2006.

 

Kent Police said Murray must serve 10 years in jail in Morocco for his involvement.

 

A spokesman for the force said Murray was deemed to be Moroccan and could not be extradited to the UK.

 

'Key role'

Det Supt Mick Judge said the Kent force had worked with the Moroccan authorities to ensure Murray was prosecuted.

 

He said: "I'm pleased Murray will now begin serving a significant prison sentence for his part in the Tonbridge robbery."

 

More than 13 people were charged with offences in connection with the robbery. Six people were convicted.

 

Depot manager Colin Dixon and family were kidnapped at gunpoint by men posing as police officers to allow the gang to gain entry.

 

Det Supt Judge added: "We must not forget the traumatic experience the Dixons and the Securitas employees went through that night in 2006 - held at gunpoint and fearing for their lives."

 

He said Murray played a key role in the conspiracy to kidnap the Dixons and rob the depot.

The Iceman says Murray was lying about knocking Tito out. Says he was there and Tito slipped or something....and seeing that Chuck hates Tito, I can't say Chuck is lying.....you know anything more about that story?

So a police dept in England says that the Moroccans must put him in jail for 10 years. Murray has been hiding somewhat safely in Morocco for the past few years. What is forcing the Moroccans to actually jail him?

 

He has actually been rotting in a Morroccan jail since shortly after the robbery. He got busted there for drug smuggling and when the British authorities found out tried to extradite him on the robbery. He applied for Morroccan citizenship at that time based on his father's Morroccan heritage and the case has been back and forth in the courts since. The 10 year sentence in Morrocco is their concession to the UK since they don't extradite citizens. He also will have to deal with the drug charges in Morrocco and serve that sentence, which will likely be longer than the UK robbery sentence.
