Trial: Photos showing cash on a phone shown in court

Pictures of cash on a mobile phone found on a defendant in the tattoo parlour shooting trial were shown in court yesterday.

An expert from Thames Valley Police High-Tec Crime Unit was called by the prosecution to talk about the images on Drizz James' phone.

James, 22, from Luton, is charged with conspiracy to rob and possession of a firearm with intent, over the attack at Fantasy Fine Line on April 11.

Expert Victoria Humpries, told the court more than 700 images were found on a memory card in the phone, some showing cash, and some which were created less than 48 hours after the shooting.

She said the file names meant it was likely the photos were taken on a Blackberry mobile phone and stored on the card.

But the defence picked up on the fact no Blackberry has been found, making it hard to prove how James came by the images.

The trial continues.
