Martin Kawley, 22, of Heathervale Way, New Haw was sentenced to over five years in prison and Tadgh Finley, 23, who resides in Ireland, received over three years behind bars after they both pleaded guilty at Guildford Crown Court to conspiring to commit burglary dwellings with intent to steal.
The two have been linked to burglaries across Addlestone, Ashford, Cobham, Sunbury-Upon-Thames, Staines-Upon-Thames, and Woking.
Proactive teams across the county joined with local officers to track down the pair. This led to the two being arrested last December. Kawley was charged with 19 counts of conspiracy to commit burglary between 6 October and 19 December 2022. These related to 16 offences in Surrey, two in Hertfordshire and one in Warwickshire. Finlay was charged with seven counts of conspiracy to commit burglary between 17 and 19 December 2022.
Sergeant Dean Rogers of the Proactive Investigation Team said: “We know burglaries can have a huge impact on victims. Tackling this crime type is one of our Force priorities and we work closely with our local Safer Neighbourhood Teams, intelligence teams and cross border resources to investigate burglaries across the county.”
