A smash and grab raider who targeted London's richest stores was sentenced to six years in jail after a spree of burglaries.
Connor Patterson, 20, of Priory Road, Kilburn , was part of gang who used stolen mopeds, hammers and sledgehammers to smash their way into shops.
The courts heard how a staggering 11 overnight smash-and-grabs took place between January 17 and February 2 this year, with total costs of loss and damage being over £200,000 to Westminster , Kensington and Chelsea , Camden and Hackney stores.
After detectives from Westminster Crime Squad began an investigation into the series of burglaries, Patterson was arrested by officers in Camden on March 23 on one of the bikes known to have been used in the raids.
He was convicted on Thursday (September 15) after a nine day trial at Southwark Crown Court.
'We will not stop until all those involved are taken off of London's streets'
Detective Constable Tony Holley of Westminster Crime Squad said: "An organised group of criminals selected their targets for maximum gain. "
"They caused thousands of pounds of damage in the course of their spree and stole high value goods.
"As the gang wore bike helmets this was and remains a complex investigation.
"However, a committed and detailed investigation from Westminster Crime Squad ensured that the case has so far resulted in a successful conviction."
He added: "Enquiries are ongoing to bring the other culprits involved to justice.
"My message to them is clear: we will not stop until all those involved are brought before the courts and taken off of London's streets.
"I would also like to appeal to all those who have information concerning these incidents and are yet to speak to police, to come forward."
