Burglars jailed for targeting homes across north London including Cricklewood
Peter Galer and Lofti Boubekeur struck between May and June last year.
A pair of burglars who targeted a string of properties including a house in Cricklewood where one of them had once lived have been jailed for a total of six years.
Peter Galer, 46, of Galsworthy Road, Cricklewood, and Lofti Boubekeur, 25, of Cranfield Drive, Hendon, struck between May and June last year.
Wood Green Crown Court heard the men broke into homes across North London including an address in Cumbrian Gardens where Boubekeur had lodged with a retired couple.
The shameless thieves scaled a brick wall at the back of the property and using a garden fork, they prised open the back door and a locked metal gate.
