Four Members of the YouTube prank channel "Trollstation" have been jailed for staging hoax robberies in two London art galleries - one of which caused a stampede and left members of the public terrified.
- Endrit Ferizolli (age 20) who often acts as the group's spokesman was sentenced to 16 weeks in a young offenders institute.
- Helder Gomes (age 23) was sentenced to 18 weeks in jail.
- Ebenezer Mensah (age 29) also received an 18 week sentence.
- Daniel Jarvis (age 27) received a 20 weeks sentence.
Although all four had initially plead not guilty, Gomes, Mensah and Ferizolli changed their pleas last week and received a 25% reduction in jail time as a result.
The court also ordered that equipment seized by the police should be destroyed.
