Phone thief who snatched 21 phones in an hour is jailed

The police have released footage of two mobile phone thieves who went on an hour long mobile-phone-snatching raid through London.

Cavell Hutson, 21, of north London stole 21 mobile phones before he was arrested by police, but his accomplice managed to escape.

The thefts, on 3 September, involved phones being grabbed out of people's hands as the thieves passed by on a moped.

The video shows CCTV footage of the pair taking a phone and helicopter film of the moped being ridden through Kingsland Market in Hackney during a police pursuit.

Hutson was sentenced to more than three years in prison at Blackfriars Crown Court on 3 October.
