Police in London and Suffolk today raided an number of properties in connection with a gang involved in high-value burglaries.

One building raided was a storage facility in Belvedere.

Another was a residential address in Kent where a 39-year-old male was arrested on suspicion of conspiracy to commit burglary.



Police state:

“The group are believed to be responsible for 20 burglaries in London alone, and more than 50 in total.

In Suffolk, Met officers supported local police in conducting warrants at a caravan park near Mildenhall, where six arrests were made.




During the searches a number of mobile phones were seized by officers and a substantial amount of high value goods that are believed to be stolen property, were found during the search of the self-storage facility in Belvedere and a number of cars and caravans, believed stolen, were seized.

Detective Superintendent Andy Furphy of the Met’s South East Command said: “We understand the devastation that can be caused to those who are unfortunate enough to the targeted by burglars and the often long term effects that can run far deeper than a loss of property.”
