The family, including young children, were asleep upstairs. The gang stole thousands of pounds worth of jewellery and other items from the house, before making off with a black VW Golf and also a Mercedes, which was later tracked and found on College Road, Hall Green. The following night the trio struck again, this time in Robin Hood Lane, Hall Green, just after 2am while the family slept upstairs. They took a purse and car keys from inside before stealing two Mercedes cars from the driveway. West Midlands Police said within minutes one of its traffic officers, PC Steven Franklin, was on scene and recorded local CCTV footage onto his body cam of a black VW Golf, which the three men had pulled up to the house in.

The Golf was driven dangerously for several minutes, eventually colliding with another parked car. The three men - including Javed - fled from the vehicle, but PC Millington-Moss jumped out of the police car and chased Javed on foot, while PC Adams looked for the other two suspects. PC Millington-Moss managed to catch Javed and found he had two stolen Mercedes keys in the back of the Golf, which officers linked to the two burglaries. Javed, 20, of Guild Close, Ladywood, pleaded guilty to two counts of burglary at Birmingham crown court and received a jail sentence of five years and three months. A man who was arrested in relation to the burglaries has been released pending investigation, and enquiries continue into the third suspect.
Detective Constable Karen Kirman, from Force CID, praised the quick-thinking of all three officers. “It’s thanks to the quick response of our officers, who remained alert and vigilant in the early hours, that a swift arrest was made and a dangerously driven car was stopped before anyone could get hurt. " This was down to good communication between our constables, including noting the car used at the crime scene and our patrol car picking it up."
