Two relatives of Manchester City Carlos Tevez, his half-brother Juan Alberto Martinez and his brother-in-law Carlos Veron, have both been sentenced to 16 years in jail for attempting a raid on a security van in Cordoba, Argentina two years ago.
The pair held the security personel at gunpoint with automatic rifles, but were then forced to flee the scene when they failed to break into the vehicle.
It is reported that Martinez then tried to implicate Tevez in the robbery by telling Argentinian police that the Manchester City striker was using a mobile phone that was linked to the crime. He also falsely claimed to have been stopping at the Manchester City striker’s house on the night of the failed raid, thus giving him an alibi.
Nice guy, gonna miss him.
