First published in News

A man has been convicted of plotting to steal from cash machine users.

Gheorghe Bechian, 35, and two other men were found guilty by a Gloucester Crown Court jury of conspiracy to steal, by using cash-trapping devices on ATMs in Stow and Gloucester, between October 2011 and July 2012.

Bechian, of Alma Road, Banbury, will be sentenced at the court on Tuesday, July 1, alongside Flavius Novac, 23, of no fixed address, and Costel Procopkiuc, 23, from Middlesex. All three have been remanded in custody.

Banbury man Amraz Hussain, 29, of Cromwell Road, was cleared of the same charge after the four-day trial this week.
