Gard police smash burglary gang
Gard police have found a burgler ringleader and his gang, after a spate of 15 burglaries of motorbikes, bicycles and tools.
Saint-Ambroix police arrested five minors and an adult on Wednesday, and they were presented to the public prosecutor in Alès on Friday afternoon.
All 15 burglaries were carried out in a similar fashion, lead by the adult, with the five minors doing the running.
During searches, police discovered a haul of goodies, although most of the stolen items had already been moved on. Items found were a motorcycle engine, cannabis resin, a 50cc motocross bike, video game consoles, a balaclava, an air gun, and a 12 calibre rifle.
In total, the investigation found that at least 12 of the recent burglaries were carried out by this gang.
They await trial.
