Four sentenced to jail in Red Bull trophy heist case
One of the most successful teams currently on the grid on Formula One, the Red Bull team has won 50 grands prix over the past ten years. All told, it has taken 119 podium finishes out of a total of 201 races it has entered, taking a trophy home from each. It also claimed both the drivers' and constructors' championship four times in a row between 2010 and 2013, however none of the trophies stolen were said to have been for its world titles.
The heist was reportedly just one of 40 such crimes perpetrated by the four between November 2014 and April 2015. All told, they were said to have stolen some $1.5 million in goods and caused nearly half a million in damage. The defendants previously pled guilty to conspiracy charges, and have now been sentenced for the robberies themselves.
