Lee Murray’s Right-Hand Man in Security Depot Heist Gets Eight More Years in Prison Than ‘Lightning’

(I can’t see why two GQ-looking guys stuck out in Morocco.)

The man who admitted to being former UFC fighter Lee Murray‘s right-hand man in the Securitas depot robbery four years ago that netted "Lightning" and his team the equivalent of $85 million USD, was sentenced on Monday to 18 years behind bars for his part in the mega heist.

0-0-1 former MMA fighter Paul "The Enforcer" Allen, who was handed over to British authorities in 2008 after being arrested in Morocco with Murray in 2006 pled guilty to charges of conspiracy to kidnap, conspiracy to commit robbery and conspiracy to possess a firearm and was sentenced to nearly double the years in jail as Lee, who was identified as the mastermind behind the spectacular robbery.

The well-planned out heist that saw Murray, disguised with a prosthetic nose and chin and dressed as a police officer kidnap the security depot’s manager and his family at gunpoint before cleaning out a number of vaults from the previously thought to be uncompromisable money storage depot.

Murray was tried and found guilty in London in absence as he sat in jail in Morocco where he has been since he and Allen were arrested for trying to import cocaine four years ago. He was sentenced to ten years in one of the country’s prisons. His sentence could be cut short by Moroccan judicial authorities, which has led to speculation that Lee may be able to buy his way out of jail using a portion of the reported $50 million  he is said to have hidden in his father’s homeland, where he was declared a citizen in 2008 after petitioning the courts and possibly lining their pockets as well.

The accomplices in the heist with lesser roles were handed stiff sentences of 15 years with 10 to be served before parole will even be considered.

Here’s an account of Allen and Lee’s time on the lam spent partying for four months following the robbery as published in the UK paper, The Sun:

"They staged nightly coke and champagne orgies with prostitutes at a £1million villa they shared. Murray blew a fortune on other properties and flash cars as loot from the blag was laundered in casinos and invested in narcotics. The chums thought nothing of splurging on boob jobs and cosmetic surgery for their molls – splashing out £17,000."

I think they may have Lee mistaken with Chuck Liddell

Guess the last line is a reference to Chuck's partying ways since the link goes to Chuck being "drunk" during an interview. This led me to wonder what the fuck were they doing interviewing Chuck about 300. So I IMDB'd that shit. On that site, it says that Chuck played a boy scout in The Postman Always Rings Twice back in '81. What the hell?! I've never seen that but I bet he'd be pretty recognizable, being the only little kid with the thousand yard icy stare.

Lee Murray was a fucking bum. He's the same guy who would've king-hit you for looking at his girlfriend at 3am on the club strip and he's no different to any of the other chancers who knock off liquor stores or mug old grannies for their pensions.

Capital Grade-A Fuckwit.

@ Bill Jackson:

I don't get the last line either. I mean sure he's got millions, but I'm of the opinion that hos should come pre-fabricated.

Hes got the money hid away hes gonna be out in a few years spending it all like a mufucka ofcourse hes awesome!
Bill Jackson- November 24, 2010 at 11:58 pm
His fight with Anderson was three rounds.
DazedNConfused- November 24, 2010 at 9:02 pm
He also held his own against Anderson Silva and lost a 5 round decision I believe. He had some potential. As for Tito, I don't believe he's European, more... Mexican, at least partially.
Sad New Yorker- November 24, 2010 at 8:33 pm
Chill with that, Lee could never knock down Tito. His squishy, European head would throw him off balance. Can't argue with science.

He also submitted Jorge Rivera in his only UFC appearance. The same Rivera that was supposed to be in the co main event of a UFC last week.
DazedNConfused- November 24, 2010 at 6:49 pm
cool story. Lee Murray is awesome in my opinion. He robbed a bank, still has lots of the money somewhere and will probably be out in 3-5. He was also a pretty solid fighter. Oh and he most likely DID knock down Tito in a street fight. That alone makes me smile.

damn the chef, why be so negative? He might not be the COOLEST man on earth, that's reserved for the the one and only Bear Grylls, but he's pretty damn close.
Read Matt Hughes biography- Made in America, in it Pat Miletich clearly states that Murray knocked Tito out with 5 punch flurry.
He was a pretty damn good mma fighter, one of the best street ballers out there, smart enough to pull off the biggest heist in British history, and kind enough to make ugly bit ches pretty.
guranteed his life story turns into a movie, which then goes on to win some oscars- but only for cinematography and editing

It's a "no news day", yeah...
the chef- November 24, 2010 at 5:03 pm
Lee Murray is most certainly not the coolest human being on the planet. He got his ass handed to him for 3 rounds by Anderson Silva, made up a story about knocking out Tito Ortiz, and is in jail for 10 years for screwing up a bank robbery
Viva Hate- November 24, 2010 at 4:34 pm
Lee Murray I am no impressed with your performance. Joe Son got himself a lady without resorting to hookers and coke and he isn't going to do time either.
Bill Jackson- November 24, 2010 at 4:18 pm
I really don't get the last line. That aside, Lee is maybe the coolest human being on the planet. How many people have gone the distance with Anderson Silva, knocked out Tito Ortiz in a street fight, and pulled off the biggest bank robbery of all time? The answer is one.
