Four-in-bed bur­glar gang hid with loot

Sunday Mirror - - KHAN SAIRA -

FOUR teenage bur­glars pre­tended to be asleep to­gether in two beds with a haul of stolen jew­ellery when po­lice raided a house, a court heard.

The four, who were all un­dressed, tried to con­vince of­fi­cers they did not even know each other.

Cops had gone to the house in Leighton Buz­zard, Beds, af­ter re­ports of a group of peo­ple act­ing sus­pi­ciously.

Three of the bur­glars, all aged 19, were jailed for a total of seven years and two months at Lu­ton Crown Court.

In­ves­ti­gat­ing of­fi­cer Det Const An­drew Bos­ton said: “It was one of the more un­usual cover sto­ries.”
