UK Trainer Robbed At Gunpoint Of £100,000

Wednesday, 14th April 2010

In the UK, 2 armed robbers broke through the front door of prominent trainer Howard Johnson on his farm in County Durham & held him at gunpoint & his wife Sue at knifepoint while they stole more than £100,000 (A$170,000) from his safe. Johnson, 56, told racingpost.com: "This is the biggest fright I have ever had. They overpowered me & chucked me against the glass doors. I couldn't act, they would have killed us. I just kept cool. It's just as well we had the cash. If we didn't, I don't think I'd be talking to you now."
