A prolific Hertfordshire burglar has recorded a video explaining a recent spike of burglaries against Asian homeowners.
The 24-year-old man admitted to more than 175 burglaries between 2007 and 2011, which took place across Hertfordshire, Bedfordshire and north London.
In a video uploaded to youtube, he explains how he targeted Asian homes due to a combination of a guaranteed haul of gold jewellery, and the current high price of the metal.Gosh! Who is the man, I wonder?
The man, who cannot be named as part of his rehabilitation...Ah. Well, that's that, I guess.
Oh. Wait. Check out the comments!
Guess how much jail time he got. That's right, none. Not any. Found guilty of 177 burglaries, totalling over £400,000 in stolen goods and no time served. Madness! If you want to know his name it has been previously published in the Welwyn Hatfield Times amongst other places.
Just search Google for "watford burglar 177" to find the story.
Why the Watford observer is hiding his identity is baffling. Why he didn't get 5-years inside is even more so.Well, well, well...
A burglar has owned up to 177 break-ins, stealing more than £400,000 worth of gold and jewellery from Asian families.
But Hatfield man Taoreed Ogboye was spared jail, instead being given the chance by a judge to turn his back on crime.I wonder if this is indeed the same man? Is the 'Watford Observer's' sneaky 'more than 175 burglaries' (yes, for those educated in the state system, 177 is more than 175) a way of attempting to prevent identification?
Or are there a hell of a lot of Africans committing 'Asian' gold burglaries across Hertfordshire?
