Case investigator, Navjot Toor, based at Amersham police station, said: “I would like to thank the victim and witnesses who have supported the police throughout the investigation.

“Prior to and after these two burglaries in the Thames Valley, the two offenders have committed offences of burglary in London, Kent, Surrey and Sussex.

“The sentencing of these two men sees the end of months of work by the Priority Crime Team in Thames Valley Police and the other forces we collaborated with to ensure all our victims achieve justice.

 “Together they stole high performance vehicles, jewellery both high in monetary and sentimental value and money and caused significant damage to gain entry to victim’s homes.”
