More gang members jailed over museum raids

Two more Cambridgeshire men have been jailed for their part in raids on museums stealing priceless artefacts.

26 year old John “Kerry” O’Brien and 43-year-old Michael Hegarty, both from Smithy Fen, each got six-and-a-half years.

Two others from the same Travellers’ site were jailed on Monday.

13 men have been jailed for up to six-and-a-half years each over the past two
days.

They targeted rhino horn and Chinese artefacts during a string of break-ins in
Cambridgeshire, Durham and East Sussex.

A judge told the gang their loot may have fetched more than £50 million.
