The jailed crime lord, who is serving 20 years for gun violence, receives compensation for lost Louboutin coaches


The jailed crime lord, who has served 20 years on machine gun plots, receives government compensation if his £ 1,500 blue Christian Louboutin coaches are lost in the mail en route to jail

  • Miekel Dixon-Nash's £ 1,500 blue Christian Louboutin was lost in the mail to jail
  • Gangster had her sent to him while serving a 20-year sentence in Kent Prison
  • Dixon-Nash, 30, was arrested in 2018 for committing a firearms offense the year before

A jailed crime boss who served 20 years on a machine gun trade received compensation after his designer shoes were lost in the mail.

Miekeil Dixon-Nash's £ 1,500 blue Christian Louboutin was lost when it was delivered to him while on duty at HMP Swaleside in Kent.

A pair of gold Nike Air Max 97 sneakers were also lost after being jailed.

The 30-year-old gangster claimed more than £ 4,500 in losses – including the price of the £ 1,500 trainer and the time he was "withheld" from wearing the shoes, reports The Sun.

When Judge Caroline Wilkinson heard the case at Central London County Court, she accepted that he owned the coaches and they were sent in.

But she gave Dixon-Nash £ 144 on the Louboutins and £ 95 on the Nikes – because he couldn't prove they were new.

According to the Sun, which reports the case may have cost taxpayers thousands of pounds, the judge said, "I accept that he owned a pair of Christian Louboutin trainers and that he owned those trainers when they were sent to jail. Unfortunately, they were not returned to him.

"He is therefore obliged to be compensated for the loss in value these coaches have for him."

Dixon-Nash was imprisoned in 2018 together with his mother Claudette Dixon [47] for a total of 34 years.

The couple and a 17-year-old boy were arrested a year earlier after an exchange of fire in north London.

Detectives investigating the shootout found a Colt 45 used in the incident, which has been linked to Dixon-Nash and the boy.

The boy's DNA was then found on a Mac 10 submachine gun in Dixon's home in Waltham Cross, Herts.

CCTV captured Dixon-Nash fighting and the 17-year-old subsequently gathered evidence.

Evidence over the phone revealed that Dixon-Nash and the 17-year-old had arranged a gun in connection with the shootings to be turned over to an employee – who was being held on video surveillance.

All three denied the conspiracy to supply firearms, but were tried in Wood Green Crown Court.

Dixon-Nash was incarcerated for 20 years, Dixon for 14 years, and the 17-year-old was sentenced to eight years in an institute for young offenders.
