The police are releasing photographs of thousands of items of property recovered as part of an investigation into a prolific crime gang. They hope to reunite the items, which are believed to have come from crimes in Cambridgeshire and surrounding counties between 9 December 2016 and 9 January 2018, with their rightful owners.

Last month, the gang members were sentenced to a total of 71 years in jail. They had committed more than 200 burglaries, including nearly 100 in Cambridgeshire, costing victims more than £2 million pounds. Gang members would mask their faces using balaclavas and smash or force open doors or windows in broad daylight. They would steal specific items, mainly high-powered BMWs and Audis, firearms, cash and jewellery, all of which they could dispose of through contacts. Norfolk suffered a similar number of burglaries to Cambridgeshire while other offences took place in Suffolk, Essex and Bedfordshire.

Cemetery Theft

We have received a report of the theft of items from a grave in the Whittlesey Cemetery. This dispicable act has caused considerable distress to the relative concerned. We have the deepest sympathies for the lady in question. Whilst any items left on graves are placed there at the owner’s risk, it is extremely disappointing that someone would commit theft from a graveside. 

If anyone has any information about this or any other similar crimes please inform the police via the 101 phone number. If you have been a victim of theft we would advise reporting it to the police. 

Number Plate Thefts

There have been a number of thefts of number plates in the Wisbech Area from BLUE VAUXHALL ASTRAS, therefore we would be grateful for any information regarding the theft of these number plates. In addition please contact Police if you see a Blue Vauxhall Astra in suspicious circumstances, reporting details together with the registration Number ( If Possible) to Police on 101 (999 in an emergency).
 
Thank you for your assistance.
