A bank manager, who helped organise an elaborate ‘inside job’ armed robbery at her own branch, has been jailed after thieves made off with £100,000 in cash.

Christabelle Amoah, 28, deliberately timed putting out rubbish at the Halifax bank in Majestic Way, Mitcham, on Friday July 16, 2010, so that two men armed with handguns could force their way in through the rear door.

Wayne Sefaah, 27, and Lee Palmer, 33, of Longlands Avenue in Coulsdon, were disguised as workmen and threatened bank workers and terrified customers by forcing them to lie on the ground while a member of bank staff was threatened and told to open the door to the counter and safe area.

Sefaah and Palmer grabbed £100,000 in cash from the safe, stuffing it into sports holdalls before making their getaway in a van parked outside, driven by 23-year-old Jeffrey Amoah of Bramble Close in Croydon.
