A gang of burglars who targeted homes in Essex and a number of other counties have been jailed at Chelmsford Crown Court.
The four men worked together to steal property in excess of two hundred thousand pounds from homes and jewellery shops during 2015.
David and Alan Speed have been sent to prison for 10 years for various burglary offences.
George Robinson and Jimmy Stevens were given seven and six years respectively.
Police say DNA traces on half-eaten pastries helped identify the men.
