Four years.  They'll be out in two, with more connections to make a bigger gang.  The sentence should have included a lump hammer to their hands thoroughly enough that they'd never be able to pick up any kind of tool again and a lifetime ban on any kind of benefits, be it income, housing, NHS or pensions.  This sort of scum only deserve pain and misery.

Well the prison sentence maybe small BUT they have a proceeds of crime to face. That could hurt more than the prison sentence

Yes, it could Mike (and I hope it does), but the taxpayer then has to spend a fortune on their benefits at the cost of the more deserving.

Plus of course, they will all be disqualified from being directors again, meaning it will limit the size of any future operation.

I'm more intrigued that someone (the owner?) located their stolen motorhome to the premises.

How did that happen?
Was it someone with personal contacts, who by inference could be taking part in similar anti-social activities, but who had fallen out with this operator?
Was it a tracking device? (If so you'd expect that retailer to be publicising the fact).
There are different sorts of trackers, working on different principles and at different costs. Some more detail here would be welcome.

Regards.

Thank you.
I still think there is more to be told.
They collect Land Rovers then immediately break them or sell them on, but the motorhome was stolen in April 2017 and 'the GPS tracker activated in June'.
It's not a consistent MO.
Barrington wasn't convicted of stealing the vehicle, rather of handling stolen goods. Given the 3 month delay, was it bought for personal use, and therefore not subjected to the usual checks?

It's good they have been taken out of circulation, for a while, but it seems they weren't 'caught', rather tripped over their own feet by moving away from what they were experienced at.

Regards.

I have been informed today of a well known local Land Rover thief having had a visit from a few fed up locals , apparently bones were broken ! I won’t give names or locations but I was glad to hear it .

Good to see a solid conviction and the fact they were hung by their own CCTV is hilarious, but the real question is why, when it first appeared on this forum in 2010, has it taken nine years to finally put this bunch of reprobates behind bars when they've apparently been nicking and breaking stuff for nearly a decade? Is "the system" really that inefficient?

The slightly longer answer is that there were other convictions/disqualifications but they all appear to have not involved incarceration.

 

It is a bit pathetic though, I agree!

Do any other Newbury Sortout regulars think they recognise some of those faces from one of the stalls in recent years?

I think they mainly peddled stuff through ebay and faceache.

The benefits of anonymity!

The proceeds of crime can be painful but it really depends on what assets the crown can prove that they own. On a drugs case locally the convict was found guiting of benefiting of £1.4m yet after everything was finalised his due amount was £117k as available funds. If they have been involved and prosecuted before then eveything will be in the names of wives and family.
