A gang who stole more than £500,000 worth of vehicles, from the Black Country, over a 5 month period has now been jailed. It was heard in court that the leader of the gang also terrified women with a sawn-off shotgun after a row with other customers in a cafe.

The court heard that the gang stole more than 20 cars while staging 16 burglaries and attempted break-ins between April and September 2014.

Most of the stolen cars were taken to a ‘chop shop’ and taken apart for spare parts or spirited out of the country while the other cars was used by members with false plates.

It was revealed by No5 Chambers Criminal Law Barrister, Phil Bradley, who was prosecuting in this case, that the crimes spread afar as Nottingham, Stratford-upon-Avon and Newcastle-under-Lyme.
