They pleaded guilty in August and on Monday were sentenced at Croydon Crown Court.
Pogmore was jailed for 20 months and Baker 18 months.
Detective Constable Aaron Hobbs, from Croydon CID, who investigated the case, said: “The pair were prolific thieves and it was because we recognised Pogmore from having committed previous offences at the store in Purley Way, that we were able to then link the two of them to this series of burglaries.
“They both have a history of similar offending and the judge has taken this into account in the length of their sentence.”
