Woman putting children to bed is grabbed and pinned down by gang who stole jewellery | London

A woman putting her children to bed was pinned down by a gang who stole thousands of pounds worth of jewellery.

CCTV footage shows the men breaking into the property in Ealing, west London through a patio door, walking through the kitchen, and into the hallway.

Detectives say the gang was responsible for 16 break-ins across London over seven months.

They stole thousands of pounds worth of cash, jewellery and electrical equipment after breaking into homes in Barnet, Brent, Camden, Ealing and Haringey.

Two of the men – Stephen Kelly and Danny Logan – were arrested after triggering an alarm in Primrose Hill.

Messages on their mobile phones also linked Daniel Hill and Beau Abououf to the gang.

These men were all professional burglars who committed crime in a highly organised manner to support a lavish lifestyle. They have shown a complete disregard for the victims of their crimes, many of whom have suffered severe financial and psychological damage

– Detective Inspector James Hale, Met Police

The gang was jailed for a combined total of 23 years.
