Look at these faces and reflect on what types of fucked up shits they are. These are the faces of gold and jewellery burglars who specifically targeted Asian households in the UK. Before they were arrested they had stolen around 250,000 British pounds ( around $325,000 USD) worth of gold and jewellery. Their names are Martin Ward, 32, Martin McDonagh, 39, and William O’Donaghue, 41 and all are from Essex, Kent and London.

Between January to July 2016, these POS robbed 11 homes in the North East of England. Supt David Felton, from Northumbria Police, told the media:

“They thought that by travelling to the North East they would avoid capture but little did they know that we have some of the most talented detectives in the world.

“Our officers used telephone data, witness testimony and ANPR (Automatic Number Plate Recognition) information to track their movements and gather the evidence needed to convict them.

“All three men will now spend a considerable amount of time behind bars and that is down to the hard work of detectives – something that I am immensely proud of.

“Hopefully these sentences can bring some comfort to the families who were targeted by these callous thieves and bring closure to what has been a very difficult time for them.

“We will continue to pursue burglars operating in our region and do everything in our power to ensure Newcastle remains one of the safest places to live in the country.”

All 3 have been sentenced for a jail term of at least 20 years. Hopefully this is enough justice for the families who were robbed. Many of the things these POS took had a lot of sentimental value.
