On 18/02/2016 UKP P.R.I.S.M Team officers were called to a boutique on Old Bond Street to observe a potential fraud attempt. On this occasion there was insufficient evidence to make an arrest and the suspect (Mr Crawley) made his way out of the area.
Later investigations revealed that a fraud had occurred using an intercepted stolen credit card and PIN.
On 14/04/16 Mr Crawley returned to the same boutique and again attempted to purchase a further watch using another stolen card. He was arrested on scene by UKP P.R.I.S.M team officers.
In September 2016 Mr Crawley was sentenced to 5 years in prison for the two frauds.
