Armed man who snuck into Buckingham Palace sentenced to jail
Chorrie Thompson, the 46-year-old man who snuck into Buckingham Palace with a box cutter.

A man was jailed for half a year after sneaking into the grounds at Buckingham Palace in London, all while armed with a knife.

Chorrie Thompson, 46, entered the grounds dressed in black, allegedly looking for a toilet.

Armed with a ‘Stanley knife’ (a serious offense in the UK), Thompson was eventually detained by security forces outside the Buckingham Palace Westminster Magistrates’ Court.

According to Nation, Thompson likely sneaked in, following the wake of a vehicle entering the gates.

Thompson has over 33 convictions, 13 of them being robbery. He has also been diagnosed with mental illness.

District Judge Andrew Goldspring sentenced Thompson, of no fixed address, to six months in jail for possession of a bladed article and two months for trespassing on a protected site.

Thompson will serve three months before being released on conditions.
