Three men accused of murder communicated on the date of their alleged victim’s death, a court has heard.

Taylor Macadam, a criminal intelligence officer, gave evidence to Bristol Crown Court today (October 29) dealing with ANPR schedules and phones in the trial into the death of Lukasz Grabowski.

It is claimed 32-year-old Mr Grabowski, who lived in Lawrence Weston, was beaten to death after taking £300,000 worth of illegal cigarettes from an organised crime group.

The court has been told that, after going to Gloucester with associates, Mr Grabowski was beaten in the entrance of an alley behind the Edward Hotel on November 21 last year.

He was then deposited outside the Gloucestershire Royal Hospital, where medics tried but failed to save his life.

Polish national Tomasz Urbaniak, 36, of no fixed address, and Polish national Krzystof Solosciuk, 39, of Pound Drive in Fishponds, are charged with murdering Mr Grabowski.

Another man charged with murder, 37-year-old Krystian Czelewicz, is abroad and wanted on warrant.

Miss Macadam told the jury cameras all over the UK photograph car registration numbers and police are able to pinpoint vehicle locations.

Miss Macadam said telephone numbers were attributed to phones linked to defendant Solosciuk and alleged murder victim Mr Grabowski.

The jury focused on a trip made on November 19 last year by Mr Grabowski from Luton to Bristol in a white VW van, and activity on his phone at corresponding times.

At the same time a Vauxhall van was driven from Luton to Nottingham, and then from Nottingham to Bristol, with Solosciuk driving according to phone analysis, the jury heard.

Later police tracked Mr Grabowski driving an Audi from Bristol to Gloucester.

The jury also looked at a telephone schedule showing calls and voicemail between the three accused and deceased’s phones.

Solosciuk’s phone found to have Telegram – a messaging system similar to WhatsApp.

On November 19 Mr Grabowski and Solosciuk’s phones were in contact when they are said to have driven vans to Luton.

On November 20 Mr Grabowski’s phone was in contact with defendant Urbaniak’s phone, the court heard.

The jury heard after Solosciuk and Grabowski separated in Luton – allegedly after collecting illegal cigarettes – Solosciuk messaged Grabowski’s phone asking where he was.

On November 21 phone records show how the accused and deceased met in Cabot Circus, Bristol, the jury heard.

After Mr Grabowski’s alleged fatal beating in Gloucester, telephone contact continues between the three accused men on that day and beyond.

The case continues.
