Five 'money mules' who cops believe were recruited to steal cash for serial conman Jay Cartmill have been given suspended sentences.

Eugene Coiley (50), Susan Crowe (27), Gareth Marron (29), Ally Young (21) and Nigel Fannon (43) withdrew tens of thousands of pounds that were illegally deposited in their bank accounts by fraudsters.

Trying to avoid attention, they took the cash from ATMs and foreign currency exchanges in multiple small amounts.
