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.
“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.”
