Three man have been jailed for burglary after a Thames Valley Police investigation.
At Reading Crown Court on Monday (19/2), Mickey Smith, aged 33, of Sutton Lane, Slough, Thomas Small, aged 27, of Paices Hill, Aldermaston, and Paddy Cronin, aged 23, of Hook, Hampshire, pleaded guilty to one count of conspiracy to commit burglary.
Smith and Cronin each received a three-year jail sentence and Small a term of three-and-a-half years.
The defendants had bought a VW Golf on 7 March, 2017, and then used this car to commit two burglaries on the evening of the 8 March in Maidenhead and Woodley.
They stole jewellery, cash, a safe and a BMW from family homes.
Investigating officer DC Barry Johns, of Loddon Valley CID, said: “We are committed to tirelessly pursuing offenders.
“Convicting these burglars will help to protect our residents from the distress and loss that these offences cause.
“I would like to thank everyone involved in the case, including the victims and witnesses who have supported this successful prosecution.”
