Police have arrested four men following a spate of commercial and industrial burglaries with thefts totalling millions of pounds.

Officers from the Major Crimes Proactive Team conducted search warrants at four residential addresses across the Black Country region yesterday, and at a large industrial unit in Watery Lane, Willenhall, which the gang were believed to be operating in. 

Supported by the Force’s Operational Support Unit a large amount of evidence was seized, including stolen property from recent commercial burglaries around the Midlands. The four men, aged 29 - 42, remain in custody for questioning. A force spokesperson said:

"We are keen to hear from potential victims of the group’s thefts. Alongside property which has been identified as stolen, a large amount of suspected stolen property has been seized which we believe may be recognised by the owners. 

"We are therefore asking the public to assist us by viewing and sharing the images and by contacting us if you believe the property we have recovered may belong to you. 

"In the meantime, we will be contacting our neighbouring forces for details of burglaries they have recorded, and trawling our own systems to match the property to known crimes. However, we believe that much of the property is so distinctive that the victims will recognise it and come forward."

The Major Crimes Proactive Team can be contacted on Live Chat on the West Midlands Police website quoting crime reference 20/19566/23.
