Luke Jackson and Harry Sales from Croydon, Billy Harrison from Coulsdon, and Perry Lovejoy from Horley were all given three years.

All four men, between the ages of 28 and 30, pleaded guilty yesterday at Guildford Crown Court to 53 counts of vehicle theft.

The thefts were across South-East England, and two of the members are suspected of other offences including drug-dealing and burglary.
