Three men from Shepherd’s Bush have been convicted of carrying out a series of gunpoint robberies in brothels across Brent.
Faisal Masood, 18, Melchezedic Williams, 19, and 45-year-old Amjad Masood, all of Goldhawk Road, targeted 16 bordellos in the borough between March 12 and June 26 last year.
They were arrested by detectives who raided their addresses shortly after their final robbery.
Investigating officers interviewed nearly 100 witnesses, seized more than 400 exhibits and around 6,000 telephone numbers during their enquiries.
A majority of witnesses were foreign nationals who were traced using Interpol and flown back to the UK to give evidence at the men’s trial.
