Harry Potter actor Jamie Waylett jailed for taking part in the London riots
Twenty-two-year-old lived in Kilburn when he was captured on CCTV in the midst of Camden disorder
A Harry Potter actor has been jailed for taking part in the London riots last summer.
Jamie Waylett, who lived in Kilburn at the time of the disorder which swept across the city, was captured on CCTV smashing his way into a supermarket in Camden with fellow rioters on August 8.
The 22-year-old, who played Vincent Crabbe in the blockbuster movies, was also pictured holding loot stolen from the store and later brandishing a suspected petrol bomb.
When officers raided his home in Messina Avenue on September 8 they discovered eight cannabis plants being cultivated under UV lights.

Today (Tuesday) at Wood Green Crown Court, Waylett, who now lives in West Hampstead, was acquitted of having an article with intent to commit criminal damage and found guilty of the other three charges.
He was sentenced to two years in jail and ordered to carrying out 20 days unpaid work.
Detective Sergeant David Cann from Camden Police said: “This is yet another successful case from the team in Camden seeking to bring all those involved in the criminality from last summer’s disorder to justice.
“We have charged almost one hundred people since the disorder took place with majority of those receiving custodial sentences.
“We are still viewing CCTV and we will continue to track down offenders to bring them to justice.
“My advice is that if you were involved, we will find you, so you may as well hand yourself in.”
Anyone with any information on last year’s disorder should call the incident room on 0208 733 6410 or Crimestopper anonymously on 0800 555 111.
