Eight gang suspects, named after raids in connection with 160 burglaries.


The police believe that these individuals are connected to a massive network of incidents that have occurred in the region in the last 12 months.

Eight suspects have been named by police after raids in Merseyside in connection with 160 break-ins.

They have all been taken into custody and will appear in court tomorrow morning.

In many cases cars were stolen and the break-ins took place mainly at night but also during the day.

Nine warrants were executed during the morning before eight people were taken into custody.

A number of arrests were made on Tuesday morning, when officials were cracking down on an organized crime group known for stealing car keys and vehicles.

According to Merseyside police this is one of the largest burglaries in recent history in the North West of the country.

Sometimes homeowners and their families, including small children, were confronted inside their homes.

Investigators said that the crime required a high degree of sophistication and planning.

In some cases, cars and other items were returned to their owners, but some properties are still outstanding.

It is estimated that the value of the stolen property is many hundreds of thousands of pounds.

Now officials have charged eight suspects in connection with the burglary ring.

In a statement a spokesman for Merseyside police named those who would appear in court on Thursday 22 October.

All eight will appear in the Liverpool District Court tomorrow, Thursday 22 October.
