TWO men have been found guilty of an armed robbery at an estate agents in Bury.

Jonathon Hogan, aged 22, of Crostons Road, Bury, was one of the masked men who burst into Pearson Ferrier on July 31 last year.

He was today found guilty of robbery and possession of a firearm.

Daniel Ogden, aged 38, of George Road, Ramsbottom, the getaway driver, was found guilty of robbery.

The jury took about four hours to return their verdicts, which were unanimous on all three counts on the ninth day of the trial at Bolton Crown Court.

John Grimshaw, aged 24, of no fixed abode, put an imitation pistol to the head of a worker at the estate agent.

He pleaded guilty to robbery, possession of a firearm and conspiracy to pervert the course of justice at an earlier hearing.

A 17-year-old girl from Bury, who cannot be named for legal reasons, also previously pleaded guilty to conspiracy to pervert the course of justice and money laundering.

Hogan, Ogden, Grimshaw and the 17-year-old girl will all be sentenced on May 23.
