A GROUP of Birmingham men including three from Frankley and two from Northfield have been sentenced for various burglary and vehicle theft offences as part of West Mercia Police’s Operation Dynamite.

The operation, which centred on six weeks of offences between December 17, 2019 and January 27, 2020, led to prosecutions for conspiracy to burgle, conspiracy to steal cars and handling stolen goods.

The common method of operation involved using a blow torch to lock snap a door to gain entry to properties to steal car keys and then the vehicle.

Some of the defendants were sentenced by Worcester Crown Court at the same time for other offences committed in the West Midlands and Warwickshire area which were in addition to Operation Dynamite.

He was also ordered to do 150 hours unpaid work and undertake 25 days rehabilitation activity with 12 sessions of mental health treatment as well as pay a £500 fine.

George Syner, 22, of Woodbrooke Road, Birmingham, was given a 14 month sentence suspended for 12 months for conspiracy to burgle and conspiracy to steal vehicles. He was also ordered to do 100 hours unpaid work and pay a £300 fine.
