“These people didn’t give a second thought to the impact their actions would have on the victims – they were only interested in getting away with as much as possible.

“We are determined to pursue those people who are committing burglaries in Northamptonshire and will use every power available to us to thoroughly investigate crimes in order to take offenders to court.”
