Chief Inspector Martin Brennan, from West Midlands Police’s Serious and Organised Crime Unit, said the cars and greed gave the men away.
He said: ‘This was a highly-organised and well-orchestrated criminal network but what makes it particularly reprehensible is that fact a serving police officer was at the centre of it all.’
…and that’s the fact that this man was in the police force at all.
And we can all guess why, can’t we?
And it worked out about as well as these things often do, didn’t it?
