A SERIAL robber has been jailed for eight years after admitting to a series of raids on newsagents and off-licences.

Amandeep Mahil, 30, (pictured) was jailed at Maidstone Crown Court, last Wednesday after he admitted a robbing £2,000 in cash from The Local in Parrock Road, Echo Square, Gravesend on July 27 with an armed accomplice.

He had earlier asked for the robbery to be taken into consideration, along with others in Blackheath, Bexleyheath and Plumstead.

Jailing him, Judge Martin Joy QC said: "You have an appalling record of violence and anti-social behaviour."

Mahil, of Beverley Road, Greenwich, targeted the Gravesend off-licence with an accomplice, who has not been identified.

T It was pointed at the shop assistant, before the robbers stole cash from the safe and £3,000 worth of cigarettes.

Over two weeks later on August 11 he robbed Luckys newsagents on Boughton Parade, Maidstone of £1,300 in cash and £2,738 worth of cigarettes. At a previous hearing he admitted five counts of robbery and two of burglary.
