Blacker Dread jailed for money laundering

Postby Ringo » Tue Jun 24, 2014 7:42 am

A FORMER credit controller has been jailed for her key part in stealing more than £700,000 from her employer.

Lorna Martin, of Selhurst Road, South Norwood, has been jailed alongside the five people into whose bank accounts the money was paid.

The 32-year-old used her job at marketing company IMCD Ltd in Sutton to create fake invoices to pay the money from the company into her and others’ bank accounts.

From September 2011 to August 2012, £30,548 was paid into two Santander bank accounts in Martin’s name, and £94,449 to her partner at the time, Leon Binns, 31, of Southbridge Place, Croydon.

A further £230,411 was paid to record store Blacker Dread, based in Brixton and run by Steve Burnett-Martin, 55, of Gipsy Hill.

And £193,000 was paid into three accounts in the names of Michael Bakare, 31, of Choumert Street, Peckham; his sister Oluwaseun Bakare, 26, of the same road; and Shevon Scott (pictured).

IMCD Ltd, of Throwley Way, only realised something was wrong months after Martin had left, and called police.

At Croydon Crown Court after a month-long trial ending on May 26, all six were convicted of money-laundering charges, while Martin was also convicted of thieving from her employer.

Martin was jailed for three years; Burnett for two-and-a-half; Binns for 18 months; Michael Bakare for two years; Oluwaseun Bakare for 18 months, and the Shevon Scott for 21 months.

Damn, just wondering if this is the only way you can get a record shop to survive these days? Another one down I guess...

Wow you can get a big stack of records even at that shop for a quarter million quid!

Sad to hear though and evidently its a done deal and the owner is serving time? does that mean the shop is no longer open? (not being sarcastic).

Someone on another forum was saying there was a notice (stuck up on the inside of the door, facing out).

It said "oops."

Rumour has it that Blacka Dread's former premises on Coldharbour Lane are soon to become a jacket potato shop.

I went by there just recently when I was in London. They were turning it to a restaurant of sort then. If I don't remember it wrong I thought it was going to be some kind of African cuisine. But you might be right...

Yes, it has already been a food place over the summer, but now will be baked spuds.
