FIVE thugs who thought they "ran" an estate are behind bars today.
The gang terrorised residents in the London Park area of Mirfield with a string of robberies.
But yesterday the men were imprisoned for their crimes, with the detective who caught them warning that no-one is above the law.
Jordan Watkinson, 19, received three years for attempted robbery and two year for affray.
Liam McCarthy, 23, was sentenced to three years for attempted robbery and a further year for affray.
Nathan McCarthy, 25, was given six years in prison for robbery and six months for drugs offences.
Jamie Evans, 20, received three and a half years for robbery.
Bryan Laffey, 16, was sentenced to six months for attempted robbery and 12 months for robbery.
Nathan and Liam McCarthy will also be hit with five-year ASBOs when they are released from jail which will ban them from the London Park estate.
The gang were sentenced at Leeds Crown Court on Thursday AUGUST 3 after they repeatedly threatened residents of a flat on Eastway Park between November 2011 and January of this year.
On January 13 Nathan McCarthy, Evans and Laffey robbed three people in the flat.
Det Con Adrian Lever, who handled the investigation, welcomed the sentences yesterday.
