Two men from London, aged 40 and 45, were recently sentenced to six years in prison each for their involvement in a string of burglaries across Sussex, where they stole high-end jewelry, antiques, and electronic devices.
Lewes Crown Court learned that the pair broke into several properties, taking various valuable items including Rolex watches and Apple products.
They were apprehended in Kent a day after their spree, with many stolen items found in their vehicle. Initially charged with three counts of burglary, three more were added later.
Detective Constable Gaye Moore, of the criminal investigation team said: “This is a great result following brilliant partnership policing and investigative work and we are pleased to see this pair brought to justice.
“This sentence should act as a warning to anyone in or outside of Sussex thinking about stealing from our communities – you will be caught and dealt with.”
