A LISSON Grove man is facing prison for the part he played in the �40million Graff diamond heist on Tuesday.
Soloman Beyene, 25, of Lilestone Street, was of conspiracy to rob at Woolwich Crown Court after a marathon 68 hours and 36 minutes of jury deliberation, over 15 days.
His fellow defendant, Clinton Mogg, 43, was found guilty of the same charge.
Beyene lowered his head and looked at the ground as he was convicted. Mogg, who stood beside him, stared blankly ahead.
