The 10-man gang, who cost victims more than £2 million during their 11-month spree from February to December 2017, were jailed for a combined 71 years at the start of last month.

Wearing balaclavas, the gang would break in during broad daylight – stealing specific items such as high-powered BMWs and Audis, firearms, cash and jewellery, all of which they could dispose of through contacts.

Police managed to recover some of the stolen items and are now looking to return them to their owners.
