Three men have been sentenced to a total of 19 years in prison following a spate of burglaries across three counties.

22-year old Adrian Budurcoiu and 33-year old Mihai Gherghinescu, both from Ipswich and 23-year old Traian Vasiluta from London, appeared before Ipswich Crown Court for conspiracy to commit burglaries in Suffolk, Norfolk and Cambridgeshire.

There had been 51 burglaries in Suffolk, 18 in Norfolk and one in Cambridgeshire between April and June 2014.

The three men stole cash, electrical items and jewellery.

"These men left a trail of destruction across predominantly two counties. Detecting burglaries and bringing those responsible to justice is a priority. These men showed no remorse for what they had done, targeting up to 70 homes over a two month period."

– Detective Inspector Nick Power

Adrian Buduurcoiu was sentenced to 5 years and 4 months, while Mihai Gherghinescu and Traian Vasiluta both received 7 years and 4 months in jail.

The Ministry of Defence has promised to talk to local Councillors about what went wrong at Bassingbourn barracks near Cambridge.

It follows a number of sex assaults against men and women in nearby Cambridge. Five Libyan cadets based at the barracks were charged in connection with the attacks in October.

Talks will be held with Cambridge City Council and others as part of the review initiated by the Prime Minister following the assaults.

Cllr Lewis Herbert, the Leader of Cambridge City Council, wrote to David Cameron earlier this month to raise questions about the incidents and an absence of communication from the MOD.

"Given the very seriousness nature of these assaults it is right that the army has apologised. I welcome this apology and the commitment to involving us in the review.

– Cllr Lewis Herbert, Leader of Cambridge City Council
