28-year-old Marlon Guy Grossett, of Barnsley Road, Fir Vale after breaking into a house in Belmont Drive, Stocksbridge, in June. Grossett, along with others, stole one of the cars from the driveway, as the homeowners gave chase in another car.

Grossett continually denied his involvement in this crime and has refused to assist us in providing the names of his accomplices, which is highly frustrating for both the victims and the officers involved.

I am pleased he has been taken off the streets for a number of years and our work will continue to ensure that criminals like Grossett are apprehended and brought to justice.
