Dartford Business Owner Sentenced to Jail for Threatening Employee with Gun

A local business owner in Dartford has been sentenced to three-and-a-half years in jail after a violent incident involving one of his employees. Jamie Oakes, 37, was accused of stealing several dirt bikes and quad bikes from Oakes’ home on Green Street Green Road. Instead of reporting the incident to police, Oakes took matters into his own hands and held the victim at gunpoint.

Accompanied by another woman, Oakes and his accomplice assaulted the victim, punching and kicking him. Oakes then revealed a blank firing pistol and pointed it at the victim’s face, causing burns on the side of his face. He also threatened to shoot the victim and his family if he did not reveal the location of the stolen vehicles.

The incident took place at Oakes’ property on Green Street Green Road, where police later found several weapons, including a baseball bat, knives, knuckle dusters, and ammunition. Oakes was later charged with assault, possession of an imitation firearm, and possession of offensive weapons.

Oakes denied the charges but was found guilty following a trial at Woolwich Crown Court. His accomplice, 34-year-old Charlotte Powell, was also charged and given a two-year conditional discharge for her involvement in the assault.

According to Detective Constable Colin Page, the victim was targeted and attacked by people he knew and trusted. Oakes’ violent actions and use of weapons were reflective of the severity of his offense, and his sentence serves as a warning to others who may seek their own form of justice.
