A woman has shared her burglary ordeal following the sentencing of the people responsible.
Four men stole hundreds of thousands of pounds worth of cash, jewellery and electrical equipment over seven months, after they broke into 16 homes in Barnet, Brent, Camden, Ealing and Haringey.
Beau Abououf, 27, Stephen Kelly, 22, Danny Logan, 21, and Daniel Hill, 22, were jailed at Harrow Crown Court in May and June.
In this interview with the Metropolitan Police, one of the homeowners recounts her ordeal.
CCTV from internal security cameras in the house showed five men entering the property via patio doors and then walking through the kitchen.
The woman was putting her two young children to bed when she was grabbed by one of the men and pinned down while the burglars stole tens of thousands of pounds worth of jewellery from the house.
The footage from inside the home proved to be a key piece of evidence in building the case against the burglars.
The men were caught and prosecuted as the result of a long-running investigation by the Met’s London Crime Squad.
Two of the men, Stephen Kelly and Danny Logan, were arrested in Mach last year (2016) when police were called to a home in Primrose Hill following an alarm.
Kelly ran into a neighbour’s garden, but was arrested a short time later alongside Logan.
The burglars had caused an estimated £15,000 worth of damage to the property after they broke in and stole a steel safe, which was found abandoned in the garden.
Kelly and Logan were linked to another burglary in Connaught Mews, Hampstead, while in custody.
