THESE two men are believed to be part of a gang responsible for breaking into more than 50 homes.

The gang appear to be focusing on homes with high-value cars inside and to be searching for the car keys.

The break-ins happened between October and December 2011 mainly in West Essex, between Chigwell, Harlow, Ongar and Brentwood, but also in South Woodham Ferrers, Westcliff, Rayleigh and Southend.

Officers want to talk to John Ward, 20, who formerly lived in the West Essex area, but also has connections in London, Kent and Hertfordshire. He is wanted on suspicion of conspiracy to burgle and also with failing to appear in court.

Also wanted on suspicion of conspiracy to burgle is Jevgenjis Kalinins. The 37-year-old Latvian, who is believed to be a mechanic, was last known to be living in Dagenham.


Anyone who has seen the men or has any information about their whereabouts should contact Det Sgt Paul Lopez at the Kent and Essex Serious Crime Directorate on 101 or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111.
