Laurence Bernard Levey accused of conspiring to rob elderly couple.
Pryors of Liverpool boss Laurence Bernard Levey has been accused of conspiring to rob an elderly couple who were tied up in their home in north Wales.
The jeweller has denied the allegation that he and another man conspired to rob the couple at their home in Leeswood near Mold in the summer of last year and pleaded not guilty at Mold Crown Court yesterday.
Cash and jewellery to the value of £200,000 is thought to have been taken during the raid dutring which the couple were tied up.
A man named Guy Warner appeared in the dock with Levey and also denied charges of conspiracy to rob.
Levey, who has been banned from travelling abroad to attend trade shows since a preliminary hearing in May, was re-bailed subject to conditions while Warner remained in custody. The trial will take place in September.
Levey took over jewellery store Pryors of Liverpool on the city’s London Road in 2004. He currently runs three shops in the area and employs 11 people.
